Does any plank owner remember if the "original" silver ball cap patches were a bright silver or a regular silver? A special thanks goes out to OS2 Roy Colon for sharing a picture of his actual silver ball cap patch. Attention on deck all Tarawa shipmates, you're looking at the first patches ever! If any other plank owner has a picture of their original silver ball patch, please share. We are in the beginning of Tarawa - déjà vu. For those plank owners reading this, you have been here.

What color is the patch the silver thread is on? I seem to remember blue?
