Are these for real? It looks like someone just embroidered over the star!

I've seen simular USAF chevron fantasy items on e-bay before. Nope, there not for real. I think it's just somebodys' idea to sell something with a military look possibly for the "fashion", crowd. I've seen kids wearing clothing with insignia that have a quasi-military look and I suspect these phoney stripes are more of the same. JMHO. :think:

Hello

The picture is to small to say, it's real or not.

Made for a different country ?

I have seen similar for the Airforce of the Dominican Republic.

It is also possible that a manufacturer or dealer still has a large residue of old badges and it is ticking over to be able to sell them to?

Or a rare prototype for excellence? ;-)

HAVE A NICE DAY

They are regular USAF sr. airman chevrons with yellow embroidered stars sewn on them. I know it. I bought them just in case they were an unusual prototype.

I have seen several different color combos for Air Force chevrons over the years. I'm not sure why they are always USAF chevrons and not some other branch that gets copied. A couple of weeks ago I saw a female childs coat for sale that had USAF chevrons. The stripes were hot pink and the field / background was a light pink. The chevrons looked regulation other than the colors. The coat was a puffy nylon made to look like down filled. There were other made up USAF type patches that were normal colors.
