Telling my age but I remember seeing these in the Army Surplus Stores in the 1960s.  As a matter of fact I bought one from my local store back then.

Yep, used to be able to get these for just a few dollars. Times have changed.This one is the second pattern felt one. I have its twin in my collection. I prefer the earlier first patterns, just like the way they look better and you certainly see more of them in the period photos.
