    Looks like 1970s/80s American ERDL cover, late Vietnam perhaps. Should be a date on it somewhere.

    I think it's a US ERDL Camo cover.

    Nitram

    EDIT - Andy beat me to it.

    Depending on the date, it is either and EDRL or a Woodlands Camo, I'm leaning towards EDRL judging from pattern size.

    I'm no expert on these but from the second set of photos posted I now am leaning to the Woodland side. I believe the Woodland had more "brownish" color tones vs. the EDRL that had more of a shade of green instead of the brown. Looks like I'm just making it confusing now....

    I agree, first is ERDL, second is Woodland.

    James, if it is any help, the Woodland pattern should match your early K-Pot cover. The EDRL pattern was never used for K-Pots.

    Should be DLA I think, though not 100%
