513th PIR Pocket Patch


Recommended Posts

I have been offered this patch in trade but I know very little about airborne patches. I have searched the forum and Google and cannot find a similar example. I would greatly appreciate any thoughts on this one before I continue with the trade. I apologize but these are the only two photos I have at the moment. 

Thank you!

Not a good one.... 

 

Reminds me of the Andrew Butler/ Old Club patches from England  due to the heavy thread on the back.  Butler Fakes typically are on a wool felt base and of the squadron patches. They have been around since the mid- late 1980s I recall.

definitely not a good patch. See good examples in Emblems of Honor -Airborne by the Keller Brothers.

Thanks. I'm working on getting a copy of that. Patches are not my area, so I've been putting it off.

All the Keller books are really good. Also if you're not in ASMIC consider it, and so is Hans De Bree's book.
