  1. What ever it is, here is my example. Came with a few other Army Aviation type patches. Is the ID 100% on this?
  2. Looks kind of new to me. Does it have a strong smell of moth balls to it? Collector used to (may still) sell some newer made examples made to look old and they had a strong moth ball smell to them! He did not sell them for much or as older or vintage ones. Filled holes cheap.
  3. Good article in the 'Trading Post' by ASMIC about this series of patches. Pics of some being worn also.
  4. Upside down. 3 jets in the back, 4 bolts off the spark plug in center, olive branch (?) too. I would not call it a CAP patch. No help beyond that.
  5. Well, someone beat me to it! Same info here. And a second to the info ocsfollowme has added.
  6. A pic of the back would help. And it is the 5th Service Cmd. And yes, it is a harder, rarer one to find. A new patch can be sewn onto say a blanket or the back of a kids jacket and still not be a 'worn' patch. At least not on an active duty uniform. I have not seen this style of patch on a shirt or jacket. Might have been done but it would have stood out in a group of regular patches.
  7. Sport related support group? The white item is a "jock strap" looking thing! For the guys who handed out the towels maybe? I am serious here and hope this helps!
  8. As wisely pointed out by someone how knows and I trust, this is not a bullion but grey thread as most were. Been alooong time cooped up on the homestead up here in WA state! I am seeing bullion everywhere!
  9. My bullion Greek Elections patch
  10. and another from a WAC in Macs HQ.
  11. Here is another to the examples shown. Not in the best of shape but still a keeper!
  12. Just about wet myself when i found this today!! Looking thru a large bin of common stuff at a antique show today just to kill time and see what was still available to the crowd. Must have been in there for years. Had to be at least 40= of the regular type of this one and I counted 7 different variations. Went back thru the bin twice to make sure no more were in there!!! Over an hour looking thru common stuff. I think it was worth it!!!
