Happy Sunday all,
This sold recently for around 176 dollars.I believe that I have an example just like it and was wondering when and where this would have been made and are they really worth that much or was it just an "eBay bid war" moment?

 

 

Thanks!

I was always under the impression that these were repros (possibly made in Taiwan)

Look like the type Kent Spaulding had made several years ago and sold through his K&S Books Catalogs.Many of his items were made in Taiwan

Just to add to the discussion I will post the ones I have.

 

These were purchased directly from Kent Spaulding(K&S) Books Alpine Texas.Time frame 1984-1987.I would see Kent at the Houston Gunshow and I also did mail order with him.

 

He offered Two SEAL TEAM 2 patches.One dark blue the other light blue.

 

He had these made in Taiwan where the bulk of his stock was made.Im sure various time frames there were variations in material and construction.These were somw of his early runs.

 

He produced anything thay was made during the Vietnam war and was often contacted to make patches for units or associations for units who served in Vietnam.He did a lot of the REcon Team Patches,UDT,SEAL,etc.

 

Note the base material and a common factor in his insignias produced were a wax paper type stabilizing material. could also be removes loose if wet or washed.

 

I have had these as examples and space fillers due to Team patches being very scarce to find.

 

I'm always suspect of these type patches being associated to more modern Team 2 use or affiliation unless they come right from the Source.
