Army 3-Year Service Stripe, (Hash Mark)
1UP-15d. Approximately 3/8-inch wide x 2-1/2-inch, long olive drab, stripe heavily embroidered on a blue/black wool background. This stripe is authorized for wear, on a diagonal, beneath the overseas bars, on the lower left sleeve of the Ike jacket and the four-pocket dress jacket and signifies three years of Army service. The insignia is sometimes called a, “hash mark,” or affectionately called an, “idiot stripe.” The examples that we have, exhibit light signs of age and have insignificant signs wear, with no soil; they have been removed from a uniform and have signs of machine sewing and remnants of original sewing thread. Somewhat difficult to find when you need one. Used. Vg. $6.00
