  1. I would not touch them. Funny that they are coming from Australia so technically they still may be Australian made White on the diamonds are too thick Base material has to be a polymer nylon of some sort Front red diamond is computerized stitching Backs are not like any other WW2 example Glued into an album within the last year and pulled out. Sketchy.
  2. This may help you find some leads. The insignia is on the reverse of the groups yearbook. Last image. http://www.americanairmuseum.com/unit/1388
  3. Yes, my friend listed 2-3 of these on ebay a few months ago.
  4. I welcome all other thoughts. Is there in fact a 3rd color variation of this insignia?
  5. Looking at the front I would think Philippines but the back looks Japanese. The patch is as stiff as a board. Thoughts? Thanks in advance. Steve
  6. This seller is the one that sells all kinds of "test" or "experimental" color patches that are FE of 101st, 82nd, Special Forces, etc... To be fair it was listed as WW2/Post War. Sold for $230. I would think 1970s Paki? If you want to see a real round variation of this patch (crazyrare), maybe Vance will show his. You can see it on his facebook page too.
  7. Back to the Twenty Nine Palms...Yes, it was TAA. Here is a shirt that was on Ron Burkey's site that has since been sold.
  8. From Ron Burkey's site. Yellow variation....gliders are different colors too. https://www.flyingtigerantiques.com/wwii-us-79th-troop-carrier-squadron-tcs-436th-troop-carrier-group-tcg-9th-af-patch.html
  9. http://www.wartimecollectables.com/wwii-glider-school-patch.html for $600
  10. I know that there are 2-3 color variations out there. 7-10 years ago these were $1000 patches but in the past 4 years they sell at ebay auction for $350-650, not the $1200 BIN that you currently see (which is the same style patch by worldwarpatches). Daniel Griffin has had 6-12 of these on his site (2 current) for the past 5 years at $450-525 per patch, all purple. I am not sure if a hoard of new old stock of these purple ones was found and several dealers/collectors snatched them up.
  11. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-WWII-Airborne-Glider-School-Patch/233705148926?hash=item3669e991fe:g:4YMAAOSwJYhfVS2u Sold by kooltreats and seller does not have any other militaria for sale. Mort, I think I will disagree and say that this is a real one.
  12. This is all what I thought too. I messaged the seller yesterday but today no response and the auction is still up. https://www.ebay.com/itm/EX-RARE-KW-ABN-AERIAL-DELIVERY-PATCH-FULLY-EMBROIDERED/383706666839
  13. +3 i was excited when I saw the lot that ended last night or this morning. Then I looked at the sellers other items and was quickly cautioned to stay away.
