    Iraqi Made Patch haul

    Post by BM on Wed Sep 09, 2015 3:20 pm

    My friend in Iraq knew of a dealer in patches that wanted to sell out and leave so I purchased his excess patches and arcs.
    It was a total of 914 pieces.
    A little of everything.

    When I was going through all the patches, I came upon two variations that some of you may have
    and don't even know it.
    They are Iraqi Police (IP) patches with Customs Police and Rescue Police in Arabic below.
    See the attached examples below.
    First is the IP with Iraqi Police in Arabic below.

    Very cool! Can I see a close-up of that yellow patch in the upper left corner of the second pic? Looks interesting.

    These are the only other US patches in the group. I'm showing front and back of the patches
    so you can see the different construction styles. All are cut edge patches.

    Thanks for the pics and great patches! I just hoped there would have been a USSF advisor patch or something like that in the group... That marine patch is very cool though. Interested in trading?
