I was only able to upload one more photo so I chose the one of the left sleeve because it shows both the manufacturer info and date along with E.M. Adams name. The right sleeve also has his name written inside but it is faint.On Jul-16-13 at 14:49:51 PDT, seller added the following information:
Upon closer inspection it looks like you can see the faint outline of a 5th MarDiv patch that was once hand sewn on. Most likely removed by Adams himself or a family member.
