    School of Infantry and Private first class, I think? The insignia is post WW2.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade is spot on. PFC rank, Infantry School and Fort Benning "Follow Me" insignia with liner from the Nam era. Worth? All depends honestly. Depends on how much one wants to pay for it and have it in their collection. I wouldn't pay more than $30 for it, at max. But then again, I don't have much interest in this era liners, etc..

    If you can get a pic of the stamp under the sweatband the year can be determined. Looks like it is still readable.
