Listed on e bay!

I've seen simular USAF chevron fantasy items on e-bay before. Nope, there not for real. I think it's just somebodys' idea to sell something with a military look possibly for the "fashion", crowd. I've seen kids wearing clothing with insignia that have a quasi-military look and I suspect these phoney stripes are more of the same. JMHO. :think:

Hello

 

The picture is to small to say, it's real or not.

 

Made for a different country ?

 

I have seen similar for the Airforce of the Dominican Republic.

It is also possible that a manufacturer or dealer still has a large residue of old badges and it is ticking over to be able to sell them to?

 

Or a rare prototype for excellence? ;-)

 

HAVE A NICE DAY

I'm searching for my collection:
White House Service badge and certificate
Presidential Service and Vice Presidential Service badges and certificates
Army Staff (former General Staff) badge, certificate and collar insignia, DoD and JCS badges
Aide de Camp collar insignia ( Army, USAF, USMC )

They are regular USAF sr. airman chevrons with yellow embroidered stars sewn on them. I know it. I bought them just in case they were an unusual prototype.

I have seen several different color combos for Air Force chevrons over the years. I'm not sure why they are always USAF chevrons and not some other branch that gets copied. A couple of weeks ago I saw a female childs coat for sale that had USAF chevrons. The stripes were hot pink and the field / background was a light pink. The chevrons looked regulation other than the colors. The coat was a puffy nylon made to look like down filled. There were other made up USAF type patches that were normal colors.
