    Nice one Rene. Congrats on holding onto it for 20 years too! Sadly you are right tho, alot of collectors find these somewhat mundane, but I think the ones with Unit insignia like this have alot of character.

    Love how the lapel buttons have nice wear to them on your example

    It guess it may depend on which part of the world you are from as to how mundane such an item is to the beholder.
    I wish I had it in my little uniform collection.
    Cheers all
