This is from a large collection of WW II to Vietnam vintage squadron patches which we will be listing more of over the next few months. TMAJJX08.
7 (Very Fine) This patch is in good condition but shows some mothing as well as some soiling. Asides from the mothing, though, there is relatively little wear on this patch – please refer to our images for a closer look!
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
