A couple of pieces received from a great friend.  An 805th TD Bn scroll and an inked 656th TD Bn patch.

Cruising Etsy and saw this image. Pretty cool vintage reprint labeled as: Vintage 1940s Photo - Tri-Delta Sorority Sisters (or as my dad used to joke; Delta Delta Delta - try Delt - everybody else has) - Girls Partying at Texas University Smoking and Drinking - WWII Era - Fine Art Print.

 

What caught my eye, was the Tank Destroyer patch worn on the shirt of the blonde in the center of the shot. On a side note, the second thing that caught my eye was the Sigma Nu shirt (my old house) worn by the gal center front.  I'm sure they were defying the house mom by partying like this! Probably a post war shot, but just goes to show you, our parents and grand parents have led some pretty cool lives.

Have what I think is best TD jacket ever that I have seen. Motto is for 216th Armd Inf Bn that was attached to the 16th Armd Div. Tab on top means Tank hunter. Will take better pic.IMG_1638.JPG.daa22f9637ba07b30fda0603a44057a6.JPG

Mort, Those are really nice.  The jacket looks to be one of a kind.

 Interesting 3/4 perspective of the black cat's face.  Also, its an oval shape and is off a uniform.  I'm wondering if this is due to a registration error with the embroidery or if the design was intentional.  Either way I like these out of the ordinary items and this is a nice example of such.  All comments and questions are welcome.

Not to ask a dumb question, but are theses patches with no tracks, one eye or no cannons and any others I may be missing considered to be error patches or purpose made variants?

John,  I would consider these to be errors.
