Dug mine out and it is photographed below. This one has more of an ACU look as far as the color of the background and border. This may be more in line with Mike's example as he described it above. It also does not have the star at the bottom of the flag banner which is clearly seen in JYN's piece that started the thread. There is also quite a bit of difference in the overall embroidery; as an example compare the wings in detail. This patch is backed with black velcro.
