I recently picked up this pair of patches from the 271st Assault Support Helicopter Company. The pocket hanger has a woven tailor shop label inside the hanger from a shop in Can Tho

I think this is the first VN patch that I can recall picking up with a maker's label attached. The label is inside the plastic hanger.

Very cool. I have never seen a Vietnam maker tag like that before, especially on a hand embroidered one.
