Interesting, it’s definitely fugly
But like cars or motorcycles or anything else they represent different things
To different people, to some history to others a blank slate for personal expression
I wonder how old the paint job is ? Looks like an 80s street art thing to me
Back when I was young I know if I picked up a surplus jacket it got filled with
Patches and pins.
I wonder if it’s salvageable? There are ways and means to get paint off, obviously it needs some fairly major restoration, but it’s a 55J14, a really early G-1, with a stencilled collar and USN perforation, and it would be nice to save it from such an ‘orrible fate. I’m not volunteering, BTW.
