I'm not a patch collector. 

 

I'm an Armored Woolie Fanatic! 

 

Two D-Day Tank Battalion Woolies, which found me during 2018

The ACC Romania shown about is not the one you expect to see as WW2 but most likely post war and probably made in Japan  and at that is  still the only one I have seen.

 

Dan Griffin had one of these on his site awhile back and I think Garth got it.

Yes Bob you are correct, it is the same one and from estate and still the only one i have ever seen. By the way the woolies posted above are real nice;most would say the 746th is the most difficult to find of the lot.

One of my unusual, and somewhat favorite pieces from the last year was this modified 28th Infantry Division patch for the movie Because You're Mine. It pays to be an ASMIC member because I had read the article on Hollywood patches and immediately knew what this patch was when I saw it on a table at a show.

Hey Wake- I guess I had failed to recognize you as the seller of the tabbed USAREURs I bought last month.  They're quite nice, thanks!  And beautiful Hesse patch yourself.

Thanks I thought it was you who bought them. That and the other 2 patches you bought came from our former moderator Garth Thompson a great man.

Thank you for the background, and I couldn't agree more.

 Will post one that is from Garth's estate and that real ID is in question. Think that Garth thought it was ACC Yugoslavia like organization. Again the only one I have seen. Appreciate further comments and information. Thanks

As always some great stuff is being shown, great in that we're seeing insignia from all eras and all branches.

 

Here are my last two pick ups from 2018.

2018 was a slow year for me but I did manage to pick up some cool pieces. Here are some chevrons I picked up that are of harder to find variety...
