patches that didn't meet the criteria of "originals".
He said in 2004-2007, in order to meet the demand of the market, embroidery shops were making
patches to meet the demand. The people buying them didn't care (know) what they looked like and bought
them. The people making the patches thought they were doing a service to the troops but now what do you
do with the reproductions? They are still reproductions.
I will post the three different sets I have noticed.
First is the Air Defense College Arm patch.
The Reproduction is on the left and is fairly well done
The original is on the right. Notice the plastic covering the front of the patch.
The reverse side - the original patch has the three snaps.
