5th Marines 3rd Battalion Patch


Recommended Posts

So I picked up this WWI Marine uniform the other day....the patch on the shoulder is in pretty bad shape.....but even though I could not pass it by!

 

Any advice and or suggestions on how to preserve it. I thought about doing some tiny stitches to hold it in place.....

Very nice tunic, as stated, leave it alone! I have seen this before on the 3/5 patches with the silk background. Thismonemismactualky better than others I have seen. Kevin

I am eagerly collecting Pre-WWII USMC material. Any Marine Corps Span Am era, WWI, Banana Wars, or China Marine related material is especially sought after.

I guess I have a different perspective, as I think the SSI looks fantastic. The embroidered part of the patch is perfect, with the blue backing (silk?) showing its age. Honestly, that patch will outlive all of us, so I think it's just great.

That makes a wonderful display, i would be proud to have that in my own collection. A 3/5 uniform in ANY condition is a tough find. Nice Type I discs perfectly appropriate for a fourth brigade to boot. Congratulations! Kevin

You could put it in a shadow box to protect the patch.

Probably should. Less exposure to atmosphere and handling. The patch will not be as exposed to light.... agreed.

 

Further...avoid moving it.
