511th Airborne real or not


Recommended Posts

This one was sold as a KW era piece. Something tells me it's more like a 1960s-80s era repro. Most of it doesn't glow but the base showing on the edge does.

 

Any opinions?

Looks way later then the 50's.

Agreed, this patch is of "modern" construction. That does not mean that it is a reproduction though.

Co A 511th Inf (Abn/Pfdr) served as the last "In House" Pathfinder unit to support the Army Aviation School.

It could (again I say could )have been made for/by the troops of this unit.

Just thinking out loud here.
