Adding to the thread, here are two photos offered up on ebay right now.  Seller has a bunch more, but these caught my eye with the insignia.

Thanks!

 

 

 I should've added the seller and id #'s. I just typed in US Army Austria and scrolled down and there they were. 

the seller is;  cakecooker101 

Car: 255388547959 

MP Office front: 255388523531

 

They seem pretty proud of their stuff at $25 a photo.

Very neat photographs.  

 

Here is a nice late USFA named grouping to an Engineer.  Notice this Ike has the small rank chevrons.

Here's a very plain direct embr USFA tab on an Ike (right sleeve):

I've not seen this style before. Looks like the soldier did it themselves.

Post war Europe is a fascinating time. Army units that had flair and great insignia (US Berlin, Constabulary, Austria Occup., etc) This is a great thread and cool rabbit hole to look into.  Here are two bullion patches being offered by the same seller (platoon317) on ebay right now.

Hi Sarge & Easterneagle,

 

Hope these couple of patches fall into your criteria for this thread.

Actually, the Constab patch was not worn by the either the 4th or 24th Constab Sqs. Both wore the USFA patch. 24th Sq wore the Constab patch upon being transferred to Herzfeld, Germany 1949. The 4th was inactivated in Austria 1949.
 

Your Tact Cmd Austria is a rare one for the series, which is extensive. ASMIC pubbed an article on these patches in The Trading Post (Apr Jun 2020)

Very possible some of the examples shown in this thread may have originated out of this shop.

Isn't it funny - I live literally round the corner and almost certainly have a number of patches that were made there...
