    hello i got one of these from the same guy last year, i dont think its a fake but like you said it has no markings, the construction is the same as the mitchell covers. there is another thread started by nickd on these covers.
    Cannot find any photographic evidence of their use in vietnam or korea or anywhere for that matter..........im sure these are original as i dont think anyone would fake a plain od green cover
