    That's interesting Nuno. I've not seen one like it before.
    A guess would be South Korean or Vietnamese, or a film prop. It's not a USGI cover.

    no worries here's what i was told about these covers

    I have a duck-hunter camo cover (similar but not exactly like yours) with a tag that shows it to be made in Hong Kong. I showed it to a friend of mine who was in VN in the late 60's; he told me that they were available there in the PX.
    also here's a good reference thread on this type of camo pattern
