The red ones are supposedly USMC, Army is green or brown.....also heard blue for AAF. My brain hurts.

Update: the bullion variant of the Ausbildungskommando insignia, still missining on the initial schools/training unit board's pic. The patch was released in late 2016.

This is a patriotic, home front insignia. Bullion is a first for me.

Many dealers, who have no clue, yet want to make a sale, ID them as staff of the various branches at the White House, or first variation of "something something".  They know most collectors don't know, either.

They exist in different color backgrounds, and embroidered on wool.

Hi

When did the vet serve? There has never been an authorized DI for the regiment. There is an unauthorized one from WW II that is exceptionally rare - meaning only 2 or 3 have ever been seen. I have never seen any copies made for collectors of this unauthorized insignia, either.

Don't want you to look for something that does not exist.

Good Afternoon,

I am writing in hopes someone happens to know anyone who has a 290th Infantry Regiment DUI for purchase. I am helping to create shadow box for someone and am in desperate need of one. Please advise if anyone has or knows anyone i can get in contact with to purchase one. Thank you for your time.
