This is an unused patch in wood box that was presented to the late Lt. General James V. Edmundson. This is a wire bullion patch sewn onto a felt like fabric. It is wrapped around a flat hard piece & sewn closed. It comes displayed in a wood box lined with red velvet.  I believe this item was presented to the Lt. General while on tour in Saudi Arabia from the crest design, but not 100% sure as this could of been when he was in Iran or Pakistan in the early 70's. The Lt. General has a similar insignia plaque that was presented to him by Hasim Hasim, Commander of the Royal Saudi Arabian Air Force in 1971 while on tour of the Saudi Air Force Techinical Training Institute at Dhran, Saudi Arabia. The bullion patch may of been received at the same time.
 
Approx. Measurements -

 Patch 3 1/2" wide x 3 3/4" tall

Wood box 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 2" tall

Condition -

Very good unused condition. Not sure how much the wires tarnished when originally received.

International Bidders - At this time I will not ship to Italy or any other Countries where the items I have listed are restricted or prohibited. I can sometimes offer first class shipping on items under 4 pounds, by doing so saves you on the cost of shipping but your item can not be tracked if you choose to ship this way. Sometimes items could be delayed at customs for over 30 days. I can not control how long your country may hold an item. Any insurance claims I can not start to file till after 45 days esp., if there is a delay or hold at customs.

International Buyers – Please Note:

  • Import duties, taxes and charges are not included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility.

  • “These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up – do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.”
  • “I do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as ‘gifts’ - US and International government regulations prohibit such behavior.
