Bloodied Aussie 1st Marine Patch


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, what do you think of this Bloodied Aussie 1st Marine Patch? Personally I like the quality of the red outline but I have never handled / had one of these. Is there any true way of knowing if this was period done? 

 

Thanks in advance,

John

Is the red rim painted or inkied over blue thread? From the photo of the back, it looks like the rim thread is actually blue and the red is only on the front?

Yeah that confused me as well. Thanks for the comment.

 

Also, I didn't buy this patch but it looks like someone else did.

It certainly looks the same to me. Thanks for the comparison!

 

I've always been cautious of this seller due to his strict return policy and his attitude towards forums. For this reason I decided not to pull the trigger and watch from the sidelines and take this as a learning experience.

Pretty strict return policy.Who are the reputable dealers and associates? Found two more examples one on uniform and other loose. In a way surprised it went so reasonably considering an Aussie made plain version is in 125 range or so last i checked.

My question would be why would anyone buy from someone who is afraid of anybody's opinions.If it's real it's real if it is proved fake it's fake you void a warranty by showing it to some one pure BS.Scotty

Bill- I think the seller is Allen Andrews and he got burned a few years ago when some "expert" said some of his stuff was fake , and it was all real, and sold for pennies on the dollar.

I have known Allen 40 year and would tell him to his face it's a bad policy.Everyone runs their business they way they want and if that is his wishes so be it.He is still a dealer that has some really great items.Scotty

I also know Allen and am surprised that is his policy; my experiences have all been very positive and friendly,seems out of character and surprised. He has good items and knows his stuff and an honest person. If what Bob said happened, I could possibly understand his position but would state it more diplomatically.

These two look older. The top one is actually a different style with the blue diamond part appliqued to the red backing. The bottom one is very different embroidery and thread than the original patch. I'd love to know on the original shown patch what that blue on the back of the red rim is. Very different!
