Thanks Vintage. Korea was exporting hunting clothing as well? 1960's?

Paul

Looks like all civilian hunting clothing.

the 13 star button shirt could, possibly,maybe have seen military use, it's of the right period. Realistically ? Probably used by a hunter. Of the commercial shirts these are more desirable re the buttons.

The Boonie looks to be super common Korean commercial fluff

Thanks for the feedback TrenchfootJoe. Yeah the pockets of the shirt appear to have maybe old blood stains on them...exactly where a hunter would place shot birds or other game.

When you say "Korean fluff" does that mean stuff that may have been sold in tourist shops?

No sweat GI. Most likely the boonie is made for the export market, available at K Mart, next to the fishing rods.

Received a response from Bob regarding the details surronding the beret. It appears I have a tourist copy. Bob explained to me how the ARVNs never used this and material left over from the war was used in Vietnam to create this type of beret for the tourist market. All this information will be included on my website, as I plan to start a section on fakes. I will be removing the item from the website. I do not want anyone to buy misrepresented material. A hearty thank you for the heads up.

 

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Mark,

I will see if I can help. The material to the outside of the beret looks too heavy . It looks like material from a uniform. The inside construction materials look all wrong to originals. The stamp to the inside looks like a quartermaster type of stamps you see in issued items. Camo berets for most part of the war were tailor made or local made. They were not issued. Most you encounter will have the plastic sweat diamond with foil size and or foil makers label. Also , I can't quite see the back where the tie strings are but it looks like it is sewn with a split to the back. To the best of my knowledge they did not do that. There were some very early ones split with drawstrings through eyelets but I have only see one real one. Hope this helps.

Regards, Mitch

A picture from the Saigon Daily News in 1965 is of this female soldier in beogam. She is of the Black Tiger Rangers, note the shoulder sleeve and also the Ranger qualification badge. First up is a shot without color correction and then an image with color correction.

The vest is in good used condition and part of the grouping.

It's the first time I have seen leopard in a museum apart from my own war room.
