<p>I found this at a garage sale in Jacksonville, NC. The guy said it was his when he was with Marine Recon. I did a little research, but I have never seen one in person until now. I will be putting it up for sale in a couple days. It just does not fit my collection. Please give me your thoughts.&nbsp;</p>

That's pretty cool, but I feel like the person wearing it would be really uncomfortable. Does it have much value? I would like to sell it, but I also don't want to rip someone off or get ripped off.

Sorry, I can't help you with value, but I'd guess a few hundred or more. It will cost you like $30 to ship.

I would think $500+

I don't even collect this exact stuff but would pay $300 any day of the week

I would agree with Fly USMC on his price assessment.
