    Yes 68 would be the year so this is a wartime made one. The patch is most likely made much earlier most likely in the 50s.

    The condition looks to be mint, are there any indications of its original owner at all in any of the pockets etc?

    This one is from the 47th Infantry Div (Minnesota Army National Guard) the patch was worn from 10th June 46 - 1st February 1991 and the unit wasn't involved in any campaigns. Lovely 1968 vintage jacket though!
