Thank you Brandon and Andrew. I really enjoy spending my time with this community.

Andrew ,I think you mean this patch. A very early post war German made. I found it in Munich more than 20 years ago. Please notice that it has the black paper on the back, today used by some "Pakistani patch manufactures" as well!

Thank you very much jgawne!

 

I'm not too happy with the pictures. My cameras display broke and I did not "hit" the plates in the center. So when I cut off the frame the patch rows appear asymetric... thumbdown.gif

 

Andrew, this one is for you. I posted it at the forum once for more informations and was told that it might could be a manufactures "testshot".

That is an Excellent Collection! Very nice, thanks for posting the photos.

 

I really like patches, they got me addicted to this hobby. No matter how many I accumulate I still get a charge out of finding them.

Thank you 20thmg!

 

It's getting harder to find new patches over here so I started up with the DUI's a little bit. Here are my first completed boards. Mostly Arty and ADA and , of course, not displayed in sequence yet. I'm not too happy with the display and try to find some better background.

 

I assume, I started a never ending story...

Great collection.

 

What do you know about the Combat Master arc in post #8?

I have one that is larger that I haven't been able to identify.

Lars,

 

Take a look at the thread I started about displaying DIs. http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/ind...showtopic=22641

 

This method might work for you.
