    Hi and Welcome to the Forum.
    Question??
    Why not consider purchasing originals? There are a lot of them out there .
    Or are you specifically looking for some rare ones?

    Sorry for the late response and many thanks for the answers so far. I'm kinda busy currently so my forum time is limited.

    I'm searching for a big patch (repro or original) for the chest area of my L2A Jacket. Most of all a combat proved Fighter squad or a Fighter Interceptor squad. It's important that the patch should be korean war correct (1948 - 1953).

    As long as I search the internet there's nothing i could use. Recently I found a website which offers original Korean war patches in a range from 200 - 400 $ , that's madness. I prefer a range from 10 - 50 $ if that is possible.

    Thank you
    Chris

    Chris, for that price range, you will only have repro patches, most probably not perfect ones either. Accurate repros are selling for much than that, and originals are indeed more in the 200-400USD range.

    So except for a very lucky hit...

    So I'll go for repro. The thing is, I wanna patch up my L2A. It's a repro jacket from Bronson and I don't want to cost the patch as twice or more than the jacket itself.

    100% agree with Cocker.
    50 US$ junk only, but understand and it makes sense.

    This eBay seller has reasonably priced reproductions of KW patches that are close to the originals. How close varies, so you have to do some comparisons, because some are better than others, but the below is a quick example of something that gets you in the ballpark.

    Question...that Buzz 335th FIS patch is really nice...I have seen them before on their jackets...how much is one of those?
