    Default Few questions about a Ike jacket that I just bought

    So, I'm in New Mexico now and me and my Grandma went to a few Military surplus type stores and I found a Ike jacket with a 1st Armored Div insignia, but when looking up the 1st Armored I found that they were disbanded in 1946 then regrouped in the early 1950's, now to my biggest concern, the jacket is dated 1948. So I'm wondering if this is a mock up or was just a spare jacket they put the insignia on in 1950's? I'd take photos but I don't have an upload cord with me at the moment. Would like to hear your guys input on this

    These pieced together Ike jackets are popping up all over the place. The local military surplus store we frequent has at least 4 of them on display. These days, even if you find one where everything is correct, you'd still have to wonder if it was not pieced together or not.
