    Holy crow, that is some impressive stuff! Those Croat badges are stupidly expensive per piece. I suppose you found a good source for them. Either that or you took out a second mortgage on your home.

    Hi Steve..

    Thanks...I've had most of those Croatian patches for awhile.  I have been fortunate to find a reasonable source that has now, unfortunately , disappeared.  

    Recently, I found another source which had these for sale at a very reasonable price.

    I have reached out to him again and hope to have an answer in due time.. Perhaps I can help you grab a few, if he has any left...

    ISAF patches.  Some look similar, but they are all different.

    Nice batch of stuff! Lots of theater made patches by the looks of it. The tiny ISAF patch in the middle... what is the story about that one? I don't think I've ever seen one in a non-standard size.

    Nice find on the Lux badges. Original ones are super hard to come by.

    Thanks Steve,  

    Those in left photo are army wings, while those in right photo are Legion wings.   Top are Franco era, bottom are current.  Gold wings represent 100 and over jumps.

    There are still 7 wings I am looking for to complete the collection.

    More Spanish..


    Once more , pre '77 ( Franco Era ) on left, and post '77 on right + assorted and older types .

    Difficult to see the different types on OD/Black wings.
