Aviation Patch, Skull & Bomb, USN, AAF, USMC, or Other?
« on: October 07, 2016, 04:12:17 pm »
Hello!  I am seeking  an answer to the identity of this patch.  Some suggest AAF, others, possible variant of VMSB-233.  I simply have not been able to confirm a squadron through museum archives or collector resources.  Thank you...

I've only seen one other like it and they were saying it was a VMSB-233 patch. It was on leather and really looked like a repo to me. But I'll offer my opinion (for what that's worth  ;D ) and say it is a variation of 233's patch. The material almost nails it down to the Pacific Theater.

Thanks for the note.  Yes, the base material for all purposes looks like WW2.  If you flip the original design around, the artwork is somewhat similar.
