*Patch is in very good condition. The royal blue and red hand-stitched lettering remains completely intact, with the coloration of the stitching as well as the red border retaining vibrantly vivid coloration! There are three (3) thumbtack holes present, along with two (2) piercings in the section of the felt where the pin was originally attached to the patch (at time of acquisition of this set, the pin was attached to the patch in the upper left portion, and the patch was thumbtacked to a black backing and framed under glass). There are a few tiny indentations in a few areas of the felt (they are not holes, as they do not go through to the back side of the patch), and there are a couple of tiny orangish stains, however none of these minor condition factors in any way diminish from any of the marvelous aesthetic appeal and displayability of this piece.
*Pinback is in excellent condition, with enameling remaining pristinely intact, retaining vibrantly vivid coloration!
