Up for your consideration is a rare, 1960s era Greek Army lizard camouflage shirt in early French colours. Chest size is quite large - at least 46" if not 48". Educated camouflage collectors know that most Greek lizard camouflage differs significantly from the French colours of the 1950s, but the earliest uniforms actually mimicked the French pattern quite closely as you can see from the photographs. This is one of the earliest models of shirt, made from heavy HBT cloth, with two large bellows pockets. T are Greek Army quartermaster and size stamps inside the lower right lapel. Condition is used, so t is a fair amount of fading, but I see no evidence of serious damage, rips, tears or repairs. Makes fine addition to any collection of international camouflage uniforms.

I will be listing quite an assortment of international camouflage uniforms, hats, and field equipment over the coming weeks. All items came out of a single collection spanning 20 years, with some rare and unusual and some more common items mixed in. T will undoubtedly be something for every level of collecting and interest. Collectors may wish to mark me as a favourite seller so as not to miss out on new auction listings, which may be updated as often as 2-3 times per week.

PLEASE NOTE: I will not accept or honour bids from anyone with entirely-negative feedback, or from any established bidders with an excessive amount of negative feedback. Zero feedback, new bidders must contact me before bidding or your bid will be cancelled without explanation.

PAYMENT INFORMATION: Prompt payment for all auctions is required, and you must contact me within three days of the end of the auction to confirm you have received my invoice. My payment preference is for Paypal (from verified customers ONLY), but I also accept money orders or cashier's cheques. Flat Rate postage and packing costs will be $9.50 to U.S. addresses, and airmail postage to most other nations will run about $18.50 USD (except Canada and Mexico). Registered mail, insurance, and other mailing options are available at the buyer's expense, and are recommended if you are concerned with postal theft or fraud (I accept no responsibility for any items that go missing in the post). If you win more than a single auction from me, I will combine everything into one parcel to save postage costs, factoring in the overall weight and size of the items, and any special packing considerations.

Please check out my other Ebay listings for more interesting, rare and unusual military insignia, berets, uniforms and field kit. I have been collecting international militaria for nearly twenty years, focussing primarily on camouflage combat uniforms, elite unit berets, and special forces/airborne/elite unit insignia, so you can bid with confidence. As founder/director of the International Camouflage Uniform Society (ICUS), as well as a long-time member of Chute & Dagger (airborne/special forces insignia society), I am always pleased to hear from other collectors with similar interests who wish to share information, help with identification, arrange trades, etc. All items in my auctions are described accurately and honestly to the best of my knowledge and are believed to be genuine unless specifically stated otherwise. All items are sold as is, and all sales are final. Contact me if you have further questions, but please be polite and articulate if you want an answer. Thanks for looking and best of luck!
