I have this past vest with USMC on the left breast and according to friends it is almost unheard of and I am curious on its authenticity

Standard PASGT vest that someone applied one of the iron-on USMC markings to.  They were intended for use on uniforms, like BDU's, but you can iron them onto anything.

It was probably done by a Marine, most likely the one who wore it, but it was not done by the USMC officially.  You could buy the iron-on insignia sets in the PX.  I've seen plenty of Marines who put emblems on their PASGT helmet covers using the iron-ons from the set.

Very interesting! How much did you get it for? I bought mine off of a veteran for $50.

I wore one of these exact vests (sans EGA of course) when doing armed brow watch on CVN-73 when I was a Airman in Weapons Dept.
