    Looks sparse, but I agree the buttons aren't from the era (1990/1991). Maybe commercial? Ask the seller to email you a pic of the tags.

    Agreed that this is all wrong for sparse cloth. Looks like someone decided to make some money off of unused cloth. The badged example is probably tarted up.

    Plenty of seller use the first picture
    It is not sure you receive this pattern as with this seller

    the Bahrain pattern is a little different because it have 3 colors ( not easy to see on a picture)
