Knock-off patch?

I don't remember where or when I got this patch, but I just now noticed that it says "501st Squad" (???) with Vaders Fist in Aurebesh.  It's a 20th anniversary patch of some sort but has no LFL branding.  Has anyone seen this before?  Just curious.  Thanks!

 

It looks yellow in the pic but is actually made with shiny gold colored thread.

Thanks, Glen! :salute:   I didn't realize what I had here, and forgot that the 501st was originally going to be a Squad. I think I'll hang onto it!

 

2017 saw the twentieth anniversary of the mighty Legion.
1997 saw the beginning, with a small but proud squad.

Is it a secret patch run? Or can anyone participate? Got a link?

This was an old run. Albin posts new runs of patches on his Facebook accounts https://www.facebook.com/albin.johnson

 

Currently there is a 25th anniversary patch and coin up for sale

25 years since the original website launched a Legion. Detention Block 2551 was where hapless stormtrooper TK-210 recounted his misadventures all while trying (and failing) to stay at his post. It was such a hit that fans from around the world sent in their Stormtrooper photos and it sparked the little club 501st Squad which exploded into the Legion.
