I remember there being another post on some Grenada patches, but here's a group I have not seen any others like except the bottom one with all the services represented.

Robert,

thanks for showing those examples; I got the two variations with the island depicted. First available at the ASMIC convention that year in Springfield,MA and everyone was buying and at the time they were $5.

I've got one color 82nd patch without an island, and two color with the island. I'd really like the subdued version. One day I'll find one, they're a bit uncommon.

$5.00 apiece for a commemorative patch is par for the course right after they're made. No telling how they'll sell in the future. I've seen the Color 82nd Grenada
patch get bid up on ebay.

My only example and I got it from Pete Bonner a few years back.

That's the last one I'm searching for.

Looks like every Grenada patch with the grenade was made by a different maker based on the lettering.

So I received a couple of new Grenada commemorative patches. In particular, the snake patch is super rare. I'm short the square grenade one.

Ok, last one and sorry if it's redundant. I found this one many years ago and it's Paki made. But, and a big but, I've only ever seen one bullion version of this patch.

Here are two more I have that are wanted more than I thought they would be! The right example is just like the one I got from Pete Bonner a few years back, but it has an added Airborne tab to it. The example on the left does not have the island outline added to it and it was never part of the patch. Made as you see it.

Very cool. That's two I don't have. I have the color "No Way Jose" without the Island, but not subdued. I will be looking for both.
