This camouflage was used during only one week-end, and so it was not mass produced. It's not like other uniforms that were mass produced by many manufacturers. That's why there's only one manufacturer for each item of the set ;
All original helmets cover were made by "Mt. Rogers Mh & MR Ser. BD"
All original jackets were made by "Steps, Inc."
All original trousers were made by "Goodwill industries of South Florida, Inc."
all original PASGT-Vest cover were made by "Unicor, Washington, DC."
I don't know how explain it, but for this camouflage, there's the issued stuff made by the manufacturer above, and the reproduction stuff that appeared later on the market for the general public (= commercial stuff, not issued, not official = copy). I mean there's no commercial stuff in T-pattern made for soldiers because this camouflage was simply never adopted. They tested it during one week-end in 1999 and that's all. Do you understand ?
And because of the elements I gave you, and with comparison with ALL other T-pattern uniforms I saw online or in private collection, I'm 99% sure this jacket is a reproduction, a good one, but still a reproduction.
Now, I don't want to accuse the seller of faking items, but he's more than probably a camo collector and then I serioulsy doubt he doesn't know this camo. I find realy curious he didn't mentionned the "t-pattern or T-block name" in the title or description because he knows it's an urban camo of the USMC (as said in his auction). And there're not tons of urban usmc uniforms....
When you've a good reproduction item you want to sell, the best thing to do is remove the labels that permit to be sure it's a reproduction / commercial item, and finaly sell it as if you don't know what you sell. After that, if the buyer is not happy of the purchase, simply respond him "sorry nu refund, I didn't know it was a reproduction because this uniform was unknown for me as said in my auction". It's what we call in law an "information intentionaly hidden". You hide informations because you know that if the buyer had these informations in mind (label,...) that permit him to be sure of what he purchases, then he won't buy it, or not at this price.
If you want this jacket, bid on it as if it was a reproduction, not an original. That's my friendly advice. Trust me, I do not project to bid on it, otherwise I won't post the link here and keep it for me moreover for the low starting price
Last time a helmet cover was sold on ebay, it was a good reproduction. I contacted the seller and give him my opinion on his helmet cover. He responded me simply "I think you're right, it's well a reproduction", but didn't mentionned this in the auction. The copy of the T-pattern helmet cover, without label inside (--> not shown on the pictures of the auction = information intentionaly hidden), was sold for $130...for a reproduction, that's realy realy expensive....I think that the buyer won't pay this price if he had known he purchased a reproduction.
Just my 2 cents...
