    I got these directly from HoovieDude a while back, the round Torres patches are all Theater made over in Iraq, while the rectangular Torres and Sabre patches are US made

    They are all "theater" made. None were made in the US. Wink

    Wow, really? I havent seen high quality patches like the Sabre and the Torres rectangular patches come out of iraq before. But I will take your word for it!

    I think the bottom sabre "40" rect patch is NOT iraq made, it has too heavy of a merrowed edge, so guessing it's from china, taiwan etc and sold in iraq. It just doesn't have any of the telltales of the iraqi patches I've handled over the years. Could be wrong.

    By theater made, I mean none were made in the US, and they weren't made in Iraq. Wink

    Having said that, I am not sure where exactly they were made Smile Pretty sure the Sabre were made in the UK, since it was a Brit owned company.
