My collection is almost entirely made up of patches that I have swapped or that I have received as a gift.
I only bought a few emblems to support charities.
Because there are crafty people who have rare patches reproduced over the heads of collectors and often ask a lot of money for it, I don't buy anything via e-bay and such sites. Fake patches are ruining the hobby
I only swap patches of which I have duplicates and I offer my trades via my trade page.
I have scanned images of all the patches in my collection. I have arranged them by country. I have classified the United States of America by state again. You can view my collection by clicking on the Countries button.
