Misc UDT/SEAL insignia.

This is what you have to watch out for. Someone first obtained a genuine SVN War era ERDL boonie hat. They then obtained a piece of ERDL camouflage material and had the current style Trident embroidered upon it. When sewn together the Trident is now a period piece from the SVN War when it is not but it was being sold as such for a large sum of money.

Here are a couple of SEAL Trident insignias... some marked, some not, hollow back & solid... a "silver" one that looks like a hand sand-cast.

 

Thanks for looking.

US NAVY name tape and TRIDENT on Woodland BDU...

This looks like what was worn in the 80s. In the 90s it was switched to subdued metal pin on insignia, then in the 2000s back to the cloth

Spike, nice white name tapes! Any chance they are named? (If you don't feel comfortable showing the name, that's ok, I understand)

 

Kadet, thanks... wasn't sure when the subdued pin on's were used.

Speaking of tapes, what are the thoughts on these? I'm fairly certain the top three are original...not sure about the bottom, although the construction seems right. I have very little in these so it won't break my heart either way. I'm putting together a display of VN - 70s era SEAL/UDT insignia for my office but only want original items in it...

Kadet.... .LOL !

 

Sure you still have these...? I have the same exact ones in my "unknown" drawer... I'd like to move them to my display area but just not sure if they are good or not. I'll post some pics in a few minutes.

With the snow we've had, I've had some spare time to move things around and photo some stuff.

 

I've got a couple of late 1960's and 1970's items and would like to include these names tapes. I just don't want the fake stuff to take away from some of the known good ones.

The dark green ones are legit and are seen in pictures. I'm not sure about the grey-ish ones. I have a bunch of them as well, one of them being UDT/TI.

 

digi-shots, yes, both shirts are named to the same man and have white name tapes.
