    Welcome to forum!!!!!! You will love it!!
    They look like Army Standard Bearer’s Sleeve Patch. the yellow one looks like it is for Signals or for the Calvary, and you might have a Panzer Grenadier Regiment one as well. I can't tell but the red one might be the recon standard shield. If they are real, then they are pretty rare.

    Thanks!!! I found out that my girlfriends father was given these when he was very young. His uncle gave them to him and said that a Nazi sergeant avoided criminal prosecution by joining the American military and gave them to him. They look like they were torn from sleeves. The whole northern portion of the sleeve is with the patch and they have been sewn together. He also has some other memorabilia apparently including a pistol with an ivory handle made in Italy.

    OK. So i found out some nice information on the patches. Turns out the silver thread is actual silver bullion thread. I was looking close at all the patches and there appears to be something different about one of them. It looks like the machine used to create them ran out of the bullion thread and finished one of them replacing the silver thread with white. I am posting pics to see what you all think. Ass you can see the wreath and border on the left flag are white instead of yellow. I put up the same rank of another one i have to show comparison. Again i would like to thank you all for helping me find this info.
