    I don't know much. But ... if original, it is in unissued condition, the stamp is not filled out with issue date, name, etc. And, if unissued, why are the tabs of a private first class sewn on?

    Thanks for the response, I know nothing of the subject and your response was helpful. Btw, I was wondering if you know of any reliable websites that sell japanese militaria?

    Hi,

    It's genuine. The iissue stamps say (oblong one) 98 Type and the square with vertical lines says it's a size 6, made in Showa 17 or 1942. It's the cotton summer version.

    Regards, Rod

    Decided to totally renovate this post because it strikes me as more uncomfortable and less funny after reading through it again. Thanks for liking it anyway Steve!

    Best, Rod

    Looks like mine. Can't comment on when the insignia was put on however.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
