82nd airborne patch review

Article about: It has the look of a modern piece as Gel states. Don't know if these are made for Veterans, out-and-out fakes or tourist items. I suppose it's how they are advertised.........

    Default 82nd airborne patch review

    Hello guys, I would like your opinion on this bullion patch. Is even possible to authenticate a bullion patch? Oh and it doesnt glow under a black light.
    Thanks a lot

    It's either a rare, expensive piece or a fake....

    Are the bullion threads metal or cloth thread?

    So I got an answer..... James told me that it COULD be real but it's probably a fancy repro.

    Compair these two patches, this one is one of the recent made patches that are coming out of vietnam, the reason that the patch does not glow is because the vietnamese have been making berets, patches, and other items the same since the 1960s after the war hope this helps Name:  nam.jpg
