  1. Im not a fan of them either, the large amount of felt material and skinny uniform lettering would make me stay away. For original WWII era scrolls I would recommend looking for wool or wool/felt, the thicker traditional Us made lettering (as seen below), slimmer cut base material, and overall lack of stiffness. The emblems of honor book on ranger scrolls is a major help as is this forum. Hope this helps.
  2. Thank you Bill.. Should I generally be looking for OD green and khaki material?
  3. Im working on acquiring my first WW2 era 101st ab shoulder Insignia but have some questions. To me this is a type 3. Correct? Also is the backing correct to be WWII era? To me it looks dark gray. Thank you Im advance.
  4. 173rdlt, thanks hopefully we can connect and share share our collection some time. #2173rdlt
  5. Hi my name is Aaron, I'm new to the forum but have been a WWII militaria collector and researcher since I was young. My US collection focuses primarily on Darby's Rangers (1st, 3rd, 4th) and I try to buy anything related i can get my hands on. This passion for Darby's Rangers is because of my Great Grandfather Hank, a member of the 1st, 3rd, and 4th Ranger Battalions in WWII, who I was fortunate enough to grow up with. His stories about North Africa and the Mediterranean theaters keep me passionate about collecting and researching to this day. I've included a War Department interview he did
