    I just corresponded with the man behind the "Eagle Patch Corner" website. He says it's a Type 14

    This type is worth illustrating and discussing, because it is often confused with the Type 10 scribble eye patch. Type 14's have a more solid line at the BOTTOM of the eagle's EYE. This type eye continued into the postwar Ft. Campbell era as a cut edge patch, with a distinct concentric raised area around the inner border of the shield and tab. In 1968, it became the most commonly produced merrowed edge type, and the same company has produced subdued variants, still recognizable by the eye design, to this day.
    Back to WW2, I have only acquired about 5 of these from WW2 vets, causing me to do two things:

    I've theorized that production on these began late in WW2, but as noted above, this company resumed production in the postwar years and has continued to the present.
    So, it seems that my patch could be WWII vintage, but it could also just as easily be early post-war.

    Yes, I like it too. Still, I'd like to acquire a patch that is 100% without a doubt WWII vintage. :/
