These are extra canvas patches from my collection. I was going to save patches of every different style of insignia for each unit, but I recently changed my mind about that. An example of how I previously saved them would be; Save 1 patch with a dark orange background, and save another patch with a light orange background. Now I just pick one or the other, and I am selling the other one here. If the unit you want isn't listed below, then I don't have one for sale.
Many are Walt Disney or Looney Tunes designs. Many are Cartoon "Mascot at War" designs. Many are great Army Air Force, Navy, or USMC Wartime Heraldry designs.
We are not always 100% sure of the exact SQD. This is our best guess as to the unit. We've been right about 99% of the time. It could be a Fighter, Pursuit, Observation, Bomb SQ., or Bomb Group insignia.
NOS / New Old Stock, meaning never used (never sewn on), but manufactured over 60 years ago. Leather / Canvas is in excellent original flexible condition, not too soft (rotten) and not too hard (stiff & brittle) unless otherwise noted.
RKO Studios Marked on reverse. Patches are canvas unless otherwise noted. Hand painted at the studio.
Circa 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1945. World War Two ~ WW2 ~ WWII
As worn on the Leather Military Flight Jackets of World War Two - the A2, A-2, G1, G-1, B3, B-3, and any other AN (Army Navy) Jacket used by the AAF, USN, and Marine Corps. These are the Chest size patches to be worn on the front breast of leather flight / bomber jackets. Canvas Flight Jackets and Flight Suits as well! They also make a great shadow box presentation display piece. Give one as a gift.
ONE (1) Unless indicated otherwise, THERE IS ONLY ONE OF EACH! This is a very rare find.
This is the last of our supply of these. This is the last of our inventory of these. This is the last of our stock of these. How ever you phrase it, don't say I didn't warn you to get one before they were all gone.
