ORNAMENTATION: Arrowhead Patch
It is beyond the scope of this study to show an
example of every Arrowhead patch ever made. The following sampling is
only meant as a representational illustration of the developmental
progression of todays Arrowhead patch.
This is only a sampling of the
many variations of arrowhead patch made over the years. The
only 2 with provenance are the top left above, (first patch issued,
1952) and the bottom right below (currently being issued). No effort has
been made to place the other patches in order of production, though, the
large patches above predate those below and are probably from the 1950s.
