  1. Got a cool US DAO Manila Patch. Is this from a squadron, base, embassy? What is the era? Got it with other Navy items from 60's to earlly 80's. Any help is appreciated.
  2. Thanks Dave for passing on this info. I have ordered one.
  3. It does help. To be honest that is what I thought on this one but wasnt sure of myself. It is good to get the conformation. I am learning.
  4. Thank you so much for your help. I truly enjoy the education. Best wishes and holidays!
  5. I thought so. Just wanted confirmation. Also included was the 173rd Airborne. Vietnam era correct? I am slowly getting better at the patch identification.
  6. Need a little help from the patch guys. Got this patch with attached tab (khaki filler). It was with a lot of other WWII unit patches. My question is, is this also a WWII patch? I try and educate myself on what I find. It looks like a post war patch (from the back) to me. Patches can get complicated for me to identify. Also the gemerals patch was with them. Cant find anything out on this one. Maybe someone can identify? Commercial patch? Im sure this is a simple question for many. Thanks in advance.
  7. It remains a mystery. I am really beginning to think it is a fantasy patch or casino. Just cant find another like it.
  8. Can someone help me out a little (more). I have a patch that I am having a hard time identifying. I found one other like it that was listed on Ebay as USAF 496th Fighter Squadron. I can not find anything on "this squadron". I dont think it existed. The patch never sold and was ended by the lister. So with that said, is this a military patch. I cant find a 496th Gunslingers squadron anywhere for any branch. Could this be a novelty item? In reference to something else? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  9. It really does help. I appreciate it. Just found it really interesting. Sometimes when you "google" it, everything except what you are looking for comes up and one gets frustrated. Thanks again!
  10. Looking to get some information on this patch. Is this a joint school? Age of patch? It looks German made? Not an expert there. Any information would be appreciated.
  11. Mystery solved. Thanks so much guys. I really appreciate it. I knew I would find the answer here. Mods- Please delete post.
  12. Thank you. I had a feeling it was not US. I appreciate it.
  13. Picked up a bunch of pins the other day. These are the only 2 I am not sure what they are. The first is some kind of cap device. May not even be US? The second is a screw back pin. Not sure if this one is military or not. Any help on one or both of these would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  14. I need a little help with the dates on this Field Utility Cap. I looked in the reference section and saw some similar to this one. The dates ranged from the 50's to the 80's. My problem is I am not familiar with the materials. This does have an open EGA. Any help will be appreciated.
