    Default My First Ike!

    Picked up my first Ike today. Overall, amazing condition. Not a moth hole, stain, or issue anywhere.

    What I love most about this one is the X stitching. The T/4, 7th Infantry Div, as well as the Philippine Liberation with Star Ribbon is nice too..

    One thing I did notice is what appears to be a symbol (perhaps Japanese, Chinese or the like) on the collar. Anyone seen this before?

    Sadly, it's not named, but that's fine with me.

    What do you guys think?
