Just picked this up a week or so ago. I got it locally for $60 which could be overpaying but I didn't care as I liked it so much I "had to have it now" I have seen in pictures online that these patches vary slightly. Is there any significance to the pick at the top being in aluminum thread? Also can anyone enlighten me on what the qualifications were to receive the patch? other than just being in a mountain unit, though I guess that might be it. Thanks in advance!
