    You are most welcome, Sir. It is my understanding that when the IGFC insignia was standardized, there were 10 Ground Force Divisions. Insignia for those 10 Divisions are the same as yours shown above but with the addition of a number (1-10) of the unit embroidered in black thread to the center of the red bend. I think this information is accurate as I have seen a few of the patches with the Division designation. Your patch is for the Command element above the Division level.

    I would say the patch is in the area of $10 to $15 for an original example.


    Here is a photograph of the insignia in-wear by Iraqi and US troops circa 2007.
