Thanks for the kind words! I have never seen one with the cord before. Have you? I only know of one other basic level. Have you seen any mroe of these anywhere?

Paul,

In this thread on WA you can see a photo in post #71 on the Farrier with cord

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/sho...5689&page=5

The whole thread is about LW armpatches and you can find other Farrier badges for references. They differs from yours, if that is relevant, I do not know.

From what I can find out, there are 33 diffrent trade badges and numerous variations of them, white or gold cord and they also comes with silver thread. Without the silver cord ones I have found 67 variations and I have 32 of them. I tend to buy the trade badges to confort myself for not finding what I'm looking for.

Regards

Peter

I agree Peter,

There are tons of variations with these!! I have never seen a corded farriers badge in a collection before! If I find one, I will send it your way. I have quite a few trade badges as well(maybe 25-30) and they are very addicting. My favorite(other than the farrier) is the Sea Rescue badge! I would love to find a LW divers badge!

Not much to tell, really. I've had this probably since the 60's. One of the few advantages to doing this stuff since before God created dirt...........

Of course, I did manage to post it upside down!

Hi,

As I mentioned in my posting on another forum, this is the 1st NCO Piped farrier patch I have seen or heard of.

Very nice. I see you are in VA. I am in Woodbridge, VA.

Just curious - some say a pipd trade badge is for NCOs, some say it represents 1 or more years of service in that trade (regardless of rank). Did piping mean the same thing for all trade badges? What about gold piped trade badges?

:speechless:
