ORIGINAL CISO PRODUCED COPIES OF NVA EQUIPMENT ISSUED TO SOG RECON TEAMS TEAMS GOING OVER THE FENCE. EXTREMELY RARE
I have limited the photos of these items to hide fabrication and material used to make them. The belt has a CISO produced copy of the buckle used by the Chinese, the toggles on the pouches are also a copy of the Chinese toggles, the belt attachments are unique to these pouches as is the material the belt is made from
Unissued set of CISO provided black cloth uniform for special forces and CIDG units. the set is unworn, tags are marked S small, CISO used several makers to supply there clothing, I have rarely found this makers tag most are the silk tag with the Red letters this tag has red letter but is different cloth than the silk tags. Note: Looks to me as both are black but the pants are a different batch number and in bright light look lighter then the shirt, in normal light its very hard to tell a difference
These are hard to find , very hard to find, I have only had this one chance to add one to my collection in all these years of collecting , thanks to a great friend and advanced collector who had two of them . this is the holy grail of MAC V SOG collectables , thank you Mel , I promise it will come back to you if I decide to sell it ..
note: I am not showing the interior, its unique, I do this so no one can copy the helmet at least not from this web site
Very odd and unusual weapon known as a mace as used in medieval times , the letter is from the SOG vet and Jason Hardy , the vet saw one of his yards swinging this around one day in camp, he had never seen anything like it and traded a boonie cap for it. The end is a vertebrae from a elephant, nasty weapon
FOR YEARS I HAD THIS LISTED AS A MAIN FORCE VC OFFICER UNIFORM, I HAVE HAD MANY SF VETS AND OTHER COLLECTORS WHO DISAGREED WITH THAT
I talked to all the Special Forces collectors i know and they say it was made for Special Forces, they wore these black uniforms in the early war and the phoenix program. The picture is from southerlands book, shows the exact same uniform, only with long sleeves. This is a very rare uniform to find, i have never found another. I have had this for over 30 years
