    As Didier said, this is a patch for the U.S. 2nd Infantry Division... a unit which is still active in modern times.

    The green border is just a production variant in my opinion.

    US Military Indian head or 2nd division patches never had a green border.
    Only fake patches do. Look on E-bay.

    I'm not so sure, Chris. I've seen green bordered 2nd ID patches being sold by some pretty reputable dealers.

    This type of patch is referred to as the 'green back' variant. WWII-era patches have a fuzzy white back on them, commonly referred to as 'snow'. Some early patches have this green background, and these tend to be a bit more desirable.

    Then again, that's if it's real.

    FAke being sold on E-bay.
    Green backs are good patches the problem with this one is the border.
