Phil's Militaria
« on: May 14, 2016, 05:38:51 AM »
Just recieved my, let's call it my fantasy cap badge. Sent Phil a couple detailed pictures and the idea of what I wanted, and then I got my 4/73rd Armor hat badge, copied after the US cavalry cap badge.
 And here are some other insignias he's had made for me over the years. Even unit crests, down to the detail. What did I pay, the cap badge cost me around $8, same as the overseas bars, can't remember what I paid for the 73rd armor patch, but it wasn't much more.
Only one snag, if you can call it that, you have to wait for around a month to recieve your insignia, which for me was well worth the wait.
He wrote me " The prices are one of my selling points, I sell cheap to make money and not keep the stuff until I die."  ;)

Just to compare, 73rd armor crest, nice bullion work, but the lightning bolt pointed in wrong direction, I should have been more specific, and the lettering Honor, Fidelity, Courage is readable, but my camera, (or me) can't get it right.
Below Armor HQ crest.
I'll be going back.  ;)

Found a hat to add my bullion patch to, plus a yellow had cord, yellow being the armor branch color.
