    I picked this one up about 4 years ago....one of my first "big" finds as a new collector. I think this is the one that made me really start hunting for good stuff.

    Fantastic piece indeed. Funny that the right hand pocket flap has different fading from the rest - replaced perhaps or made from a different dye roll, who knows ... Also unusual is that the guy has placed nametape where 'US Army' would normally be. Love that pocket zipper mod too!

    This is a beautiful shirt and in my opinion is 100% authentic. I have a few of them, one with the same tailor made SFC collar stripes. As for the name tapes, I have seen several versions, some with US ARMY tapes in the normal location and others with no US Army at all and the name tape on the left side. The reason I am told is that they were advisors to an ARVN unit and not a US Unit and therefore no US ARMY tape. These uniforms have become very valuable in recent years. I was lucky to obtain a whole footlocker full of the uniforms of a CPT who was an ARVN Airborne adivisor. I recently attended a memorial dedication/reunion of the advisors here in Fayetteville and many of the Vietnameese veterans who attended wore their old camo uniforms, much of it French.
