    Hi mate

    Only problem with this Ike is 3rd ID SSI is from 1957 , note Army Green border used with the then current AG Uniform c1957 onwards.

    Yes correct. It also could possibly be a put together with the MUC and 3.5 years overseas service.

    The SSI is also on the right shoulder meaning then assigned to 3ID.

    They wore the Ike up until c1955ish but the date on the Ike would of been early to mid 50's.

    By the way all pieces on the jacket are genuine WWII post WWII era c 1945-57.
