    Uniform Stampings

    Post by cybercarnage on Mon Aug 06, 2012 3:09 pm

    As everyone knows, the arabic "J" is the stamping that everyone looks for on an Iraqi uniform. Although this is a sure sign of it being a military uniform, it is not the only way.

    From my collecting experiences, another form of what I am calling a "Government Acceptance Stamp" is prevalent. I have seen it in 2 of my uniforms, which I know are OIF era because of who I bought them from as well as the pattern and quality. It is very similar to the 8 sided star similar to the "Baath Party" one. I am putting it in quotes because I am not sure if it is actually a symbol of the Baath Party. I believe it is a form of Party or Government acceptance because manufacturer tags are there and the 8 sided star is stamped on it as well.

    This is just a hypothesis/observation that I have come up with.

    I will be sharing the Manufacturer stamps to show that they are not military tags, then I will share the "Baath Party Stamp" for each.

    First up is the tag in a desert camo uniform of mine made by RMC.
    I have a post-2003 made RMC uniform that doesn't have the star stamp in it, however, the camo one does.

    Up next is a tag in a green camo uniform that I have, as you can see a non military tag. In fact, this is a woodland brush stroke camo.

    This stamp has also been found in some of the late domestically manufactured Iraqi Ballistic helmets.

    Good to hear! If you happen to have a picture by chance it would be great to have that addition in the thread. I have never owned a helmet with the star stamp. I have heard this type referred to as what you said, last ditch helmets, or m90 helmets. I'm not too sure about the m90 designation. I like yours better!

    Thanks!

    I just sold a uniform that had a star stamp on it. Does that date a uniform at all?
