I’ve seem homemade, heavy stitched and bullion... but never saw anything like this.

 

Not just beaded but a black sequins background.

 

Could this actually been worn?

That's pretty interesting. Never seen something like that before but it's pretty cool. I doubt it was ever worn though. Compared to regular and theater-made patches this thing would stand out and have every Chief in a 100 mile radius on your butt.

Looking at the back, it looks like one of those thick rates made from the 1970s. Probably something someone did for a costume.

My wild guess is someone made it for a WAVE veteran to put on a handbag or some fashion accessory. Is it closer to  two inches wide or three? It's a really cool piece, anyway.

So, this would never have been worn on a uniform. It was done fire some “Civilian Application”.   A costume, a bag, something. Either way, a lot of work.

Thanks, there are two of them - a pair I assume... currently on eBay.  They are not mine, but just wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing out on some rare variation!😀
