    Hi Nick, it appears to be a WW2 era patch. But the pics are rather small. It looks like it has the usual tan coloured edging. My knowledge of current repros and values of these is now limited, as I stopped collecting US Gear over 20 years ago now. But I know a link was posted on the forum to all the variants of these a short while back.

    Cheers, Ade.

    just put a black light towards the backside to see if it glows or not if you are in doubt about if a patch is ww2 era or not. yeah I type slow so my answer was late.

    yeah it looks good, wish I could post pic's, but I have one that I'm pretty sure is not from ww2, it has sniper on it, but what I like about it is the eye is a rifle cross hair. I just kept it because it's different, but I keep it & a few others that I know are not ww2 seperate from my ww2 patches, but I have not seen many with the green border like yours. have you done the black light test on it? just asking I'm pretty sure yours is an older patch.
    regards Marty
