The prefix of the contract number depends on the timeframe it was made. A two digit number within the contract number shows the date of the contract. Looking at the two together usually provides enough information to figure out if it is legit or not.
Some test items do not have labels with either a NSN and/or a contract number. But there's usually some other info on there which specifies it's a test item.
One of the problems with US military testing is sometimes they will used COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) items. In that case there is 0% difference between that item and one available through standard commercial channels. This is where there needs to be some sort of evidence that proves that particular piece is "special".
Generally speaking the chances are very low that a commercial piece of camo is anything other than commercial simply because of the millions of pieces of commercial camo out there, only a handful have any official connection to a military.
Also in with them is another BDU style pair of trs with a slightly different NSN number,sort of Urbanish in greys made by CAMO Distributors CENTRE,ALABAMA 35960 so another pair of non issue trs?
