    A Bunch of Worn Iraqi Patches

    Post by Bird Child on Sun Jul 13, 2014 3:31 pm

    I'm not an Iraqi collector but, I buy a lot of groups from vets. I got this in a grouping from a 25th ID guy. He traded Iraqi soldiers stuff to get these. Really cool Iraqi Patches not sure if there rare or worth much but, I think there cool.  I guess I have an instant collection now.Most of them are really worn just couldn't capture that much detail cat

    I'm not sure about their rarity, but that is an awesome collection of patches! I recently bought 4 from a 28th ID veteran and they all had the same crude stitching.

    Considering the number of new patches being made simply to sell to collectors on ebay, this is a really nice used set of patches with provenance. Still worth a pretty penny. Tom

    Tomas is correct; I have several of these patches and all are brand new. Does not get much better than used purchased from a vet. Thanks Clete
