    Any idea where I can locate 761st Armored Division patches?

    Hey All:

    I'm putting together a 761st "Black Panther" Tank Battalion figure and I need his patches. I've checked CVI and Patches of Pride, but no luck. I emailed Patches of Pride to see if they can make one for me. While I wait, does anyone have any suggestions?

    Below are pics of the patches I need.

    Thanks.
    Eric

    CVI and Patches of Pride were the two first places I checked. I didn't see any on either site, but I did email Patches of Pride. Hopefully they can help.

    Thanks.

    Did the 761st wear the armored forces triangle with the numerals on it during the war? I've always been told that these patches were not seen until after VE day.

    Hmm, I'm not really sure. Can anybody verify this before I go nuts trying to find this patch? And if they didn't wear this patch during the war, what did they wear?

    Thanks.

    Thanks SSG Felder! By the way, how was the book? I'm thinking of picking it up. There's supposed to be a movie being made based on them, right?

    Thanks for the tip, TexGunS. I'll contact OpsToys now.

    Thanks.

    Eric,

    First guy I'd ask is Brian (unforgiven5150). He's done ALL of my 1/6th patches for my British Forces including some very specialized Gurkha ones.
