That's what I was thinking. Most are ones I picked up in the 80s, so luckily not a whole lot invested. I like to go through and thin out the fakes.
Appreciate it Bob

I second the vote.  But you have some classics here. Patches from the 80's are now old enough that people think they are from the wartime period.

Not a whole lot if reference books back then on Vietnam insignia, it was a minefield.
Seems like they made better copies back then than they do now.

Many thanks Gil & all the other contributors to this fascinating & useful thread(I have spent a couple of hours reading it from start to finish). I am very new to Vietnam Patches............ 3 days to be precise! To me at the moment they all look good......or bad! I am finding it hard to find original examples to compare with those I have. So for example the RECON RT KENTUCKY & the RECON RT NEW MEXICO ones on page 6 look like mine from the front but the backs seems different but that does not make them original. So I think mine are dud because the backs are dirtier than the fronts & there is no evidence that they were ever sewn to anything. Here they are front & rear. Any thoughts please?
