Most patches on this list appear to have been counterfeited.
Many have been counterfeited more than once.
They appear in new sizes with minor differences and are presented on eBay (2004-2013-)
as being of Vietnam War era production. Some are clean, others appear soiled or stained,
but actually have been scorched to appear discolored. They may smell burned.
Construction appears appropriate for era, but close examination suggests
better technology than was available at that time.

I believe those presented here are of authentic time and place unless otherwise noted.
