This amy not be what you are looking for, but my Company had these made up for a border patrol mission. This was right after the wall came down. We were stationed in Schweinfurt.

Hi,
The small blue and white "Germany" tab is for the 10th Infantry Div from the mid 1950's. After WW2 the 10th dropped the "Mountain" designation.
Regards,
Bill

To help clarify the situation for collectors; what was shown in the frames was a yellow lettered airborne tab when it should be white. The yellow is in alot of collections with the owner thinking they are good;I include myself in that group until I got clued in by a fellow ASMIC member as to what was correct. Check out the scan and all will be clear. Mort

Here is another one, looks German made, apparently they did not have a firm grasp on the difference between SHAFE and USAEUR.

Mort,

That's amazing how the embroidery weave on the two patches you posted look identical. Other than the colors being off, is there any other giveaway that the golden or yellow Airborne thread patch is a fake/reproduction? Scary thought and heaven forbid if the fakers should ever get ahold of a spool of white thread.

Any chance of a shot of the reverses of these two patches?

Can someone give me the lowdown on the white thread Airborne version, period of use, level of scarcity?

Gary

Oops! Forgot to post pics of a fairly well worn Brit made example I have in my t/m patch binder.

In 1959, I bought the USAREUR airborne patch with the white border (center, above photo) at the Frankfurt PX. Contrary to what some people will tell you; it is NOT a WWII patch. Rather, at that time ('56-'59) it was being worn by a small group of airborne units attached to USAREUR. They included the 557th QM Company (Aerial Supply); and the fledgling LRP companies (which at that time were in the embryonic phase and weren't even called LRP companies). The familar green 557th QM Co patch was worn as a pocket patch. Oh yeah......... I paid a stunning 25 cents for the patch, lol!!
