Though the patina is a bit different, I believe the left collar emblem is an original match and just tarnished, appears to be surface tarnish. But I could be wrong. Either way, I've been on the hunt for a pair of these for a long time! My wife's better at this hobby than I am, and I love her for it
Some of you may recall, I purchased a rather worn single just prior to my deployment. Guess I'll have to trade it off, or sit on it and wait for a match. It is shown above the new pair for comparison. These emblems have also been discussed here: http://www.usmilitar...d...=54880&st=0
