Default ARVN beret

Hello forum

A Vietnam veteran is teasing me with this beret. He says he wont sell.... and will keep in the family.

He says it's from an AVRN ranger Colonel? I don't know. These are the only photos I have. He also said a local "mom o son" (?) made it.

What is something like this worth, and is it original? I offered $100, and was turned down immediately.

Thanks Robert

Not one I would want. The beret badge is not what you want to see on a real beret.

I agree with Bob on the Ranger badge. The Air Force Colonel's rank insignia is bad, too.


You're lucky he declined your $100.00 offer.

Even the sweatband looks off. You should be glad he turned down your $100 offer

above link takes you to a different item.

He also posted it on a Facebook page with a story about how it came from a fellow veteran who gave it to him, etc.
