    Somehow im thinking this is a faked item, look at the crease in the arm, it appears to have been ironed recently but there is no crease in the anchor insignia, as if its been applied after ironing , its too clean for its age, and the other creases in the whole tunic would appear as if its been laundered, are there any markings inside

    I know very little about KM items, but surely this jumper should have a breast eagle in place?

    I see no real evidence that this item belonged to this sailor. The only connection is the rank insignia.

    I would pass on it. "Buy the item, no the story" as the old saying goes....

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hola Ade,

    Yes, it's true. Is preferible, not buy this. Thank you very much for this and the other opinion.

    Regards
    Jose Luis
