Granted, ERDL camouflage is one of the most collectible out there, but no one expected this 22 yard remnant to go for a whopping $1613.88 on an eBay auction.

The Engineering Research and Development Laboratory pattern was developed in 1948 and adopted for operational use during the Viet Nam war. Several color variants were produced including the Green dominant version in this auction. It remained in use for many years and eventually used as the basis for the Woodland camouflage pattern (ERDL was blown up 60% and the colors altered) adopted in 1981.
