    Yes a specialist patch,I'd like to know the era of the shirt...Was wondering if the M 1914 black stamp inside collar can date the shirt,specialist rank came in effect approx.1946-55. Thank you for your input,Your knowledge is admired...

    1960's-Vietnam era, IMO. I believe this type of rank was
    in use beginning in 1955..........

    I agree with Steve. Almost certainly, early 60's Viet Nam era.

    I think the M1914 ink stamp will be the soldiers surname initial and last 4 digits of his serial number.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank's Adrian! That makes sense,When i was in those sort of stampings were issue dates,i like most military had a stencil to print our name...Again thanks for tour input,Sincerely.
