USMC P44 Jacket EGA Stenciling Correct or Not?

Recommended Posts

The EGA stamp and USMC FONT seem to be off on this P44 jacket. Am I wrong, is this a repro?

 

Thanks

 

Craig

Thanks Im thinking maybe done by hand as well. Maybe over an old stamp. Here is the best picture of the weave I can get, but it looks Marine to me. Its up for sale on eBay and Im thinking Im going to stay away.

I have seen hand-drawn rank insignia on Marine HBT's, so a hand-drawn pocket EGA stamp would not surprise me. A reproduction would almost certainly have an iron-on EGA and try to look real.

Ah, that helps. Marine weave.

 

Didn*t P44 HBT shirts have the eagle clutching the *Semper Fidelis* ribbon in its beak in the EGA stamp?
