I have not come across any "loose" ones, however the EGA iron-stencil is still readily available as surplus, as they were used up until the late 1990's. I still remember ironing mine on at OCS. It wouldn't be tough to find some leftover material and make your own if you wanted one.
Not really what i was talking about. Anyone could conceivably fabricate these, sure but making your own sort of defeats the purpose of collecting. No, I was just wondering if there was any old stock supply of these diamond patches that never found their way onto helmet covers. Also, the iron-on EGA's were used up to the early 00's.
I'd really like to get a copy of the Marine Corps Supply Bulletin referenced in the Gazette.
Gunbunny - thank you for posting your patch. :thumbsup:
