I just saw this on eBay and someone ruined a genuine 1968 dated jungle jacket. The Trident doesn't look like embroidery done in South Vietnam or the Philippines during the war. You just don't come across Tridents on jungle jackets from the Vietnam War because the Trident didn't come about until the end of the Vietnam War. With that said I have seen photographs of a genuine period direct embroidered Trident on an ERDL jungle jacket from the war. Now jungle jackets were worn beyond the Vietnam War however this Trident does not match any of the post war Tridents that I have come across on OD or camouflage uniforms. This Trident looks more like the junk you see currently embroidered on baseball caps that sell on eBay.
