    Hi there

    Very hard to explain in a few tips , take the 101st , in one case the same manufacturer was making the same patch on the same machinery and probably using the same style tape from 1942-1968.
    Add to that if you look at Bando's site that list 14 different WWII "types " plus there are various other sub types that he doesn't list.
    I collect 1950's eagles and some I have would confuse you as WWII era, as well as during early to mid 50's when the 101st was reactivated as airborne Div. , there were dozens of different types produced both official and unofficial.

    Also as per Rene, yes the patch could of been put on during the war, my main point was there was a previous patch and thats the talking point for collectors.

    these days I guess.........
