Brass Patch Insignia
made for the Division's 50th Anniversary in 1991
- actual height: 4 inches -

  More information is coming on this rare collector's item that is probably the finest graphic ever made of the Division patch insignia. A limited number of copies were made, and we know that Gen. Jerry Rutherford presented some to the officers and board members of the 3AD Association (WWII vets) at their reunion in 1991, which was the 50th anniversary of the Division's founding. The slightly rounded surface held the metallic-paint design which was covered by a flawless, smooth gloss finish. The brass base was 4 inches high and one-eighth inch thick.
