    South Korean 'Noodle' pattern. Exported to as diverse places as Ethiopia and Guatemala. Probably worth about $20 depending on condition/size

    South Korean definitely. It would be worth the most if you found it to be Iraqi issue.

    I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty sure the stuff exported to Iraq and some South American countries were cut differently than the standard ROK items. Africa is another matter since I'm pretty sure they got stuff "off the rack".

    I would assume this is a 1970s ROK jacket unless there's reason to suspect otherwise. Look for stitch marks consistent with ROK use. For this particular jacket you would typically see standard sized tapes over each pocket and a jump qualification badge (square) over the left breast tape. There could be a circular badge on the upper right arm, a large cockeyed oval over the right breast pocket. Rank would be on the left breast pocket flap, "inside" edge, for enlisted ranks or on the collars for officers.

    Years ago, in the book (and part series) 'War in Peace', pictures show Ethiopian troops on parade wearing shirts with two breast pockets, flapped with single exposed button on each. I believe this pattern was widely exported, not just to other militaries but also to the commercial market - I remember picking up a number of pieces in Melbourne surplus stores back in the '80s - a suit like the Ethiopian one mentioned above, and a jacket somewhat similar to a US service coat.

    Steve is right in that the above example is your typical ROK cut for the '80s period. Usually these were found badged out to ROK Special Forces with the particular SF Brigade shown on the pocket (oval patch).
