Vietnam Tiger Stripe Uniform Grouping

Recommended Posts

Here are some tiger stripe uniform items that came out of an attic. Each piece is a little different. Do any of these pieces look like Vietnam war era? There is a boonie, a cap, two pairs of jackets and two pairs of pants. Any opinions on the age of these pieces would be greatly appreciated. Please let me know if any additional photos would be beneficial to determining the age. An in country made 75th Infantry, Company N patch was also found with the grouping, but I didn't purchase it. I could find no markings on any of the uniform items.

To me, everything looks like modern reproductions. The boonie hat is no good, all the tiger stripe fatigues are repros, and I’m personally not a fan of the tiger stripe patrol cap, though better pictures would help.

Also the 173rd Airborne Bde is missing the tab for the Captain Willard top.

 

I had the Patrol cap in that pattern when I played OPFOR at Hood back in 83

while I am 95% certain those are all reproductions, They can actually bring decent money from reenactors

Thanks for the help everyone. I think I will sell them as reproductions, that way someone can get some use out of them. They appear to have never been worn.
