388TH Tactical Fighter Wing ??

Recommended Posts

Hi Members,  I believe this is a variation patch of the 388th Tactical Fighter Wing.

Can any member determine the origin and date of this patch?   Thanks!

The stitching on the front side looks like reproductions that have been coming  out ot the Philippines in the last decade or so.  Notice how the zigzag stitching doesn't quite fully cover the base material.

Gentlemen,  I suspected that it was a reproduction patch of the 388th.  

I am so grateful for your time to provide clarity.  The patch will now be

removed from my collection.  Thank you both for making that possible!
