SWAP PATCHES & Scutelliphily

SWAP PATCHES, account for the highest volume of patches made and collected since the 1960's.

Their primary use and reason for manufacture was for patch collectors to swap their own unit patches with operatives from other Units. Collectors of patches engage in the art of Scutelliphily and are Scutelliphilists.

Scutelliphily is not a new art, it was practised by Roman Legions and by the Knights Templar.

Generally (although not always) of lower quality than their Full Machine, Hand Embroidered pieces made in Hong Kong, in the Tailor Shops of Bangkok and Saigon, the value of the 'Swap Patches' keep them inside the realm of even the most budget conscious collector and are terrific pieces for young collectors and people starting out.

They are often used as fillers in the collection of the most serious of Scutelliphilists.

The boom of 'Swap Patches' started in Vietnam with pieces readily available to collectors at reasonable prices. For example to have 50 SWAP Patches made in Saigon or Da Nang at the time of the Tet Offensive in 1968 would cost no more than $2.

Naturally where collectors operated, so did Combat Operatives supplementing their income via the designing and sale of these pieces.

These patches, made in Saigon, Da Nang and Bien Hoa were however not only made for swapping but also for large scale units and divisions. You are as likely to pick up a used US 1st Infantry Division, 101st Airborne Division, ARVN Tiger Force Airborne, Swap Patch that was used by a Combat operative as you are to pick up one specifically made for exchange.

The same is the case for the larger Provincial Recon Units

This is not the case when you look at less numerous units such as Recon Teams; these pieces were made for exchange.

These pieces, SWAP PATCHES, were made for exchange and for use and are generally priced lower than other Vietnam War patches.

How do I identify a Vietnam War SWAP PATCH?

  • They are always machine made
  • They Invariably (although not always) have a cheesecloth backing (cheesecloth is a gauze like-fabric readily available in Vietnam during the war due to the previous French Connection )
  • They are often smaller than their worn counterparts ( this is only applicable if they were made solely for Swapping )

Price is not an identifying factor with VIETNAM SWAP PATCHES - They start from as little as a dollar and go up to $250.00 You should be able to build a collection of 100 SWAP Patches, if you do your homework for as little as $700 - $ 3,000
