502nd PIR patch WW2, post war or 50 / 60s version?
« on: June 02, 2018, 02:27:40 pm »
Hi Guys,

I was wondering if somebody could help me. Long story short, I recently purchased a 507th ww2 PIR patch and 502nd ww2 PIR patch from the same seller. I'm convinced that the 507th patch is original ww2. The 502nd patch on the other hand has some "issues".  The 502nd patch I got is the small one (3'' version) and looks slightly different from the WW2 versions I saw on the internet.  As far as I could research there are WW2 versions in 3" and 3 3/4', 3 5/8''. I don't think size is the issue here but the appearance. I noticed that the eyes of the 502nd patch I got has more more rectangular eyes than the WW2 versions I saw on the internet.

It's definitely not a repro as far as I know, but is it from the ww2 era, postwar or even later?

Pictures of the patch are included.

I'm not the expert, help is appreciated....

Thanks,

Anthony
