    Hello gents,

    Please help to identify if the displayed patches (75th Ranger regiment and Rnager Dimond) are authentic or repro.
    If repro - how much they may worth?









    Thank you!

    Diamond is a modern fake, and not a very good one. Originals are fully embroidered with a marrowed edge. Be careful tho as there are very good repros on the market. The 75th looks ok, it's probably real, but it's modern issue for the old dress greens.

    The black red and white ranger scroll are modern, the lettering doesn't look exactly like the ones I've seen but reasonable likeness. The subdued ranger scroll, I can't recall seeing these, have seen in tan brown combo before. I suspect the large tan ranger tab is fantasy piece.

    The subdued 2d Ranger Bn scroll is fine as well.
