Is this 714th Tank Battalion patch real or made for collectors?  If real, is it WW2 or post-war?

76th is mostly like Gemsco, definitely US made. The 714th looks good to me, but is post WW2

I am skeptical on the 76th. The weave is very tight and unlike any I have except a 5th RCT patch that Dave previously identified as german made.

 

Tredhead?

The 76th to my eyes doesn't look like a gemsco. Just a plain us made patch. But I've been wrong before

Ski, you are much more knowledgeable, but I am still skeptical.

A majority of the 76th you see are actually black back English made. A German made one would be much different

There are others out there like that, that have the same weave pattern to them and are not associated with overseas manufacture.  Here is an example of a 91st ID patch with the same pattern to it (second from left)  Note the difference between it and a Gemsco to its left.    My gut feeling is that it is US made.

76th posted by GAP is US made 

 

714th was activated post WWII,1950-58, however I'm not to sure if they used this patch or whether 714 could of been  added at a later date. Definitely not WWII era.
