    Hi all,
     
    With the war on terror carrying on for so long now people have come to realise that there is money to be made in certain items. There are certain people that trawl the internet for images of special forces patches and then have them reproduced in Afghanistan whilst deployed. These patches are 100% in country made however the vast majority were NEVER ordered by or worn by the units the represent. There is also another grey area here where a small run of patches is legitimately made in theater and then a collector or dealer gets that shop to produce another run of patches generally far exceeding the original small batch.
     
    As I find these patches I will post there pictures here, with these examples being such a grey area this is just my opinion.
     
    BE VARY WARY BUYING THEATER MADE AUSSIE PATCHES.
     
    Im sure they same applies with US and any other SF patches.
     
    Regards
    Jason

    This patch was a EOD rotation from several years ago, yet it appears coming out of Afghanistan a couple of months after the legit aussie made patch appeared on ebay...

    The top patch is the real aussie made version I posted on this site. Weeks later theater made patches were on ebay. What wasnt mentioned was that this was a very limited run of patches to see if they wanted to use it and they didnt like it, this patch or the version with text were never adopted as they wernt liked...
