This one has an interesting story.
Back in 2016 I picked up a huge patch collection from a closing surplus store. The entire collection was a mix of everything, military, police, etc.. It was mediocre at BEST. So at first glance I thought this was junk! Eventually I got around to looking it up and found out it was for the security agency field station in sinop, turkey. It doesnt really look us made so im guessing it was made over in turkey or japan. also beware, I have seen copies being sold.
Are these rare? Ive been trying to find another but so far ive come up empty handed.
Heres some info from my old listing
