High Standard Patches



Log in to see fewer ads
Picked these up locally and am curious as to the dates they were released.
I believe the triangular patch to be a new reproduction because of it's excellent condition. The yellow patches are 4" and about 3 3/8" respectively. Also, I think they're repros because of the excellent condition.
When were the originals made? And, can anyone verify that these are repros?

Thanks,
Dan

All three patches appear to be reproductions. The smaller of the two similar patches is a size not offered by the factory.

There are still original patches that are in excellent condition.

High Standard Patches

I would guess that the Eagle patch was offered in the mid 1950's and the Trigger logo patch would be from the late 1960's. Joe

There are at least 4 different patches with the eagle. The first is the most detail and suggests the 1951-1953 era. The next two are similar but with less detail. The forth had a space gun so would be 1958 or later.

The curved triangle patch has at least 6 variations. I suspect the one you have is a replica of the ones from 1968 to 1970. There are two variation of that one.

Thanks! I had no idea that there were that many different patches.

Just an FYI since i know a bit about how they make them, and how things have changed over the years.....

Up until the 80's - 90's most embroidery was hand digitized using a primitive digitizing device similar to a computer mouse. Stitch counts were added, details tweaked, etc along the way.

Many didn't store the finished product, so if they ran patches a number of times, even if done by the same company, chances are they would be slightly different. It wasn't until the 90's or so that the machines and tech advanced enough that the average company could afford digital storage with all the details.



Cool that Alan has the old thought to be original though. But as for the initial questions, stored properly those things could look good for a really long time.

I believe this is the second design. Wayne Larcombe, a HSCA Collector, had a red and gold oval without the bullseye but sold it years ago. I believe it was the first design patch.

A number of this design with the bullseye design have survived but many have moth damage as the red field is felt.

There were two different banners made for High Standard by the Hollywood Banners, New York, New York. The one Alan posted is the black banner and has the twisted fringe. There was also a brown banner with a straight hanging fringe. John Hanks had a dark banner with a purplish cast but I believe it is just sun fading.

The Sentinel patch is not patterned after a factory patch. High Standard never offered a Sentinel patch.

The other patches are also not factory distributed patches. Similar but not originals.
