    These patches aren't my collecting interest but the price was right so I got them.
    All came from Iraq and have different sewing techniques.
     The Kirkuk Air base 2007-2008 patch is 5-5/8 in. diameter which is a large patch.
     I have a question on the Multi-National Corps, Iraq patch. Why the different design? Most of
    the time when looking for Multi National Corps, Iraq Patch,  a completely different design shows up
    with a spear and Palm leaves and no lion. Is this an earlier version?

    With MNC-I three are different insignia that were used concurrently, for different reasons. The MNC-I emblem is what is represented on your patch: Iraqi Freedom and Multi-National Corp,Iraq Patch with lion Multinational_corps_iraq_emb_n11757

    There is also the MNC-I Shoulder Sleeve Insignia (shoulder patch:Iraqi Freedom and Multi-National Corp,Iraq Patch with lion 180px-USAEMultiNatlCorpsIraqSSI )

    and the MNC-I Distinctive Unit Insignia (an enameled pin backed badge, for wear on berets and dress uniform: Iraqi Freedom and Multi-National Corp,Iraq Patch with lion 100px-USAEMultiNatlCorpsIraqDUI ).


    The MNC-I SSI and DUI are military uniform items.  The MNC-I emblem was not worn on uniforms, but would have been present on flags, signs, power points, letterhead, briefings.. etc.  I'm sure you're aware already, but the patches you have are not uniform items but commemorative items typical of what was available at AAFES, Bazaars, Troops Stores, etc on various bases..

    Thanks for the information on the MNC-I patch with the lion. I wasn't sure on that patch but I knew that the others were commemorative or novelty patches.
