    Default usmc cover pattern, real or fake?

    so i have never seen this pattern cover but know there are then just one pattern. i has the used look which makes me think it is real, but on the other hand, the stitching on the top in one of the photos shows that the stitching may have been messed up or something leading me to beleive maybe fake?

    im sorry i didnt read details until after posted, i really dont read the details unless it is almost the end and i am interested. i just assumed it was real because of wear and th price they were askingh was $300. this is a repro that was aged. still do you think they made them in this pattern?
