The jacket retains its original insignia for the 526th Armored Infantry Regiment. The patch is a very rare, German BeVo made example complete with the Battle Axes tab. The patch alone is extremely scarce to encounter. The 526th played a large role in the batte of the bulge. On 17th December 1944 it was sent as a spearpoint to break the German advance. A company attacked Stavelot, B company entered Malmedy. A very interesting jacket in very good condition with a very rare patch!
