    unknown brushstroke

    Post by Guessologist on Mon Aug 16, 2010 2:05 am

    Guys,

    Appears to be generating some interest.
    Any ideas as to it's origin? Looks Rhodesian but.....

    Aplogies if you are bidding on this and trying to keep it low-key.


    Cheers,
    Ben.

    Cut looks identical to early BDUs. My guess (and just a guess) is commercial.

    My thoughts as well, Chris. Looks like someone cut the tags out of this one to enhance the "mystery" around it.

    I'm not sure what that is. It has some Rhodesian pattern influence, but it's really "off". My guess is some sort of Asian commercial piece.

    It's not one of the Adder/Adro copies, as the shirts were only two pocket, and the jackets were an M-65 style with single pocket buttons and a drawcord waist. Plus the pattern and colors are way off.

    Strange piece....

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Well someone paid nearly $70 for it, so maybe they know something we don't.....

    Thanks for all the comments.

    Or someone thinks they know something Very Happy Either that or they don't care. I sold an Adro boonie, clearly marked as a repro, for something like $70 a few years back. That was a good sale!
