Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any idea why the all red border? I have never seen one before, for artillery (?) or an error(?). patch is poly thread. Thanks, Louis

If I.am not mistaken there is a farelly recent topic showcasing this type of 42nd Inf Division without and OD and or AG border, I checked back aways but could not spot it.

I disagree. It was manufactured with the red border. It was possibly a test run patch or simply an error. Very nice nonetheless!!

I wasn't applying that it was'nt made on purpose this way, just that I remember this exact one was discused in a earlier topic, as I remember seeing this patch before. I looked around in older topics here in the Shouder patch forum but It has eluded me.

Not to be funny or anything but it could just be a gay pride civilian patch.

I collect items from The Battle of Iwo Jima (1945).

Top Iwo Jima Items I'm Looking For:

1) IDed 5th MarDiv Corpsman Jumper or Forest Green Coat.

2) IDed Coast Guard Navy Jumper

3) IDed CB's Sea Bee's Navy Jumper

4) IDed 147th Infantry Regiment Army Service Coat

5) IDed 32nd ID Army Service Coat (Occupation Kyushu with 5th MarDiv).

I am always looking for named and dated WWII USMC Forest Green wool alpha jackets/coats from the 5th Marine Division or other units who participated in the battle.

I think I started the thread about one of these and the general feeling was it being an error patch. Like teamski, I think it is cool so I kept it in my collection.

Right, I remember your name now, 36 tex, you had at the time initiated quite a few topics on all sorts of insiginias, I tried to go back and find it but I did'nt see where it was, or the topic titles did'nt catch my eye. If I recall then, it was the consensus that this 42nd Inf Division was an Maker error, so it appears here as well, on this I agree too, as it has polyester backing threads, an error in that did not have its AG merrowed edge applied for what ever reason, maybe as a test run.

I have one, the border is very POORLY done,,my guess was that the real ( merrowed) border was never added. . just like patches said.

Duh... I never thought of the patch being merrowed. Can we get a shot of the back?

As it was stated that it has poly backing threads, lead me to believe that it was a type that would have had a AG merrowed border, but for some reason was not applied.

I have to admit,, I bought mine in the hope it was NOT what I thought it was an unfinshed patch, I will have to get out the crap box, that is now where mine is, and has been after getting it :)

I would like to thank everyone for their comments. I do not thing this was intended to be a merrowed edge patch but was made as a cut edge with a red border. I have a Army Green border and the contruction looks exactly like the red brder. Thanks again, Lou
