Looking to verify whether these are good or bad.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Thank you all. I was told by a former unit commander they weren't good based on the colors and had to call for fire. Glad to know my worries were for naught.

 

Appreciate the QRF response from all.

Welllll, at one time, I had what most collectors considered the finest RVN air cav trp  patch collections going. Then wrote what is now considered one of the definitive references on air cav trps, in RVN - it was published twice.  

 

Two thoughts -

 

* They are "in-country" real deals.

 

* They were made around 1970-71 by an ASMIC member, in his shop in-country. To me, that's about as close as you are going to get.  That's about the same as when I was a kid, my monthly trips to "the BIG PX in Frankfurt" and buying all those patches that collectors now consider German-made, mouth watering goodies.
