    Post by PathfinderMilitaria on Sun Feb 08, 2015 5:19 pm

    Hi guys I got this uniform from my friend was told that the ANASF never used this pattern. Can anyone confirm this? I have another uniform brought back by the same person that is a ANASF on a US 6 Color Chocolate Chip. Time frame when this was brought back 30/04. Anyways looking for pics of the troops wearing this uniform and also enjoy looking at my 3rd Afghani uniform. Ill post my other 2 soon.

    Is the insignia sewn to the uniform or velcro backed? I'm also curious why you are referring to this piece as an ANA SF uniform? Thank you ......

    I honestly thought it was a SF uniform. Honestly today I just found out it was a Afghanistan Security Force patch. The patch is Velcro backed and Velcro attached to the uniform for placement. I am sorry I miss labeled this uniform. I am still learning as we speak.

    Thanks for the response.  I'm still learning as well.  You are correct that the insignia is ASF.  The uniform, I'm not sure ......  It is not of a pattern that I have seen used by the ASF.  Especially during the early period(s) that the large "generic" ASF patch was in wear.  As has already been mentioned, the patch is quite rare and highly desirable.  Many thanks for posting these.

    What I have been told that this uniform is in the timeframe that it got brought back to the states. They officially got rid of this pattern in really late 04 but by 05 for sure. This is why I posted to the group. I am wanting to learn more about the uniform pattern and see if it was used by the ASF.

    Also another question for you all. How rare is that patch and anyone know a value on it?

    Well since you all like the 1st patch so much. This is on a US made chocolate chip uniform. If I fecal the US gave the uniforms to the Afghani's.

    2 über cool patched uniforms. Im very sure your in box is going to overloaded with PM wanting to buy these..
    Also cool is the 'glint tape' on the arm of the chocolate chip top. Done in the early days?

    Only down side is that the photos are so detailed that we soon gonna see these on Ebay Sad
    But that is just my thought.

    Thanks for sharing these.

    Also another question for you all. How rare is that patch and anyone know a value on it?


    As already stated have never seen this pattern of uniform used by ASF. The Six Color DCU that you just posted, yes. Woodland BDUs, yes. But not anything like the first uniform which I think dates from later than the 03/04 or even 05 time frames that you have been told the piece was used.

    How rare is the patch? How rare is rare? Good question that I can't really answer. I've seen less than 6 of the large ones. A few more of the smaller version shown on the Six Color. That one comes in two versions by the way. The MRF version as worn by the ASF indigs and a similar patch that was worn by the SF operators that was ODA specific. There are other variations of these as well.

    The value is whatever someone would be willing to pay. What have you been offered? In my opinion they are a very good investment as I suspect these early limited run hand made and/or hand guided machine made patches will be some of the most sought after insignia from the GWOT. My thoughts only ...

    Also - If not too much trouble could you post additional photos of the Six Color? Front/Back/Shoulders/Chest/Upper & Lower Sleeves? Thank you
