    i would say that your second patch looks like the WW2 type 3 but your first one looks to be the post war type on the second page from the eye & beak style.

    i just looked at the scribble eyes and held my patch up to it the patch i have looks more like the type 10 because of the straight black line under the eye and the tongue isnt filled in all the way at the back of the beak and is skinnier also in the picture i just took its the first one next to the scrible eye that looks closest to it that i bought about a year ago but again its still all a shot in the dark and i appreciate the effort your putting in to help me

    The first two pictured are ww2 101st not sure what type. The third is also ww2, but the last one pictured is a 1948 to 1950 or could have been issued right after the war due to the blue trim on the edge. This web site should help TRIGGER TIME - 101st Airborne WW2, check under insignia they have some of the types listed
