    Yes this example is rarer and therefore is the highlight of my collection.
    In my town (Plzeň) is a very popular Indian head, because this division was in Plzeň in 1945, but I think that easy to come by in the USA.

    The od border patch was used in the late 40's early 60's on the od fatigue uniforms, hence the green border. Later during the Vietnam war, the patches were made black and green so the enemy wouldn't know what division you were from a distance. The color patches were limited to dress greens afterwards.

    The 2nd Division patch did exist during the war with an OD. green border. Later in the war many of these green bordered patches disappeared and the full color patches took their place. The green bordered patches were designed to blend in with the background color of the uniform to which they were sewn and also make the stitching less visible.
