USMC 2nd Div. Patch ok?


Recommended Posts

Hello Gentlemen,

 

Does this one look ok to you? I liked it, it is a little knackered, but I want to be sure.

 

Thank you for your thoughts and assistance!

It kind of reminds me of this reproduction. But I'm not an expert, but someone aged it with some dirt...

If the star does not appear to be re-applied, then what you have is a real 1920's 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment SSI. The Marines were gone from the Division by July of 1919. The colored patches were used up to about 1925. Bill

I do not think the patch is an original. The Indianhead that you have there is normally associated with a little later time period than immediate post WWI. I also do not like the yellow felt. It looks like more modern felt than WWI vintage material.

I recommend that you adopt the overall theme of this song.

Always interested in the 166th Infantry, 42nd Division, A.E.F.

Quality WW1 studio portraits and real photo postcards of Distinguished Service Cross recipients; showing steel helmets; or other interesting content.
