Winged dagger in a star patch

Recommended Posts

Maybe Japanese, kinda reminds me of the ww2 Japanese hat insignia.

Check out my eBay page, I sell military insignia and just about anything else I come across

I've been looking for awhile this morning - no luck. How big is it?

I was thinking the khaki base lends itself to a temperate uniform, and the star is a big clue. I was searching Soviet, Turkish, Greek & Italian. I found a similar looking patch online from the IDF, but the star was 6-pointed.


At any rate thanks for the mystery, it's always fun to kill time searching for military insignia as I always end up off on tangents and inevitably learn something new.

I was thinking possibly Yugoslavian but I haven't found a match either.


Is it wool or heavy cotton backing? I'm really thinking it is some Commbloc insignia.

Always looking for WW1 28th Division; anything, papers, field gear, uniforms, etc.

It is about 2x2 inches. I do not have them yet....they were in a grouping that I just picked up. Almost every soviet patch that I found has the star but has the hammer and/or sickle too. I am baffled.


RD12: I agree. I love the Can U ID thread as I always learn things. Scavenger hunts are always fun.


Thanks for helping. I will post the backings on Friday.

I think we've pretty well established this is non-US, so I am closing the thread. If found to be otherwise, I'd be happy to reopen it.
