Patch, 17th Armored Division
WWII genuine shoulder sleeve insignia of the 17th Armored Division.
This unit was planned to be activated, but the war ended before this happened. The patches were made for the unit but it wasn't activated by the Army, so the patches just went to a government warehouse "for future use".
Several more armored divisions such as 15th and 18th were planned, but those plans never materialized.
