    It looks to be a ww2 USAF patch, there is a wiki link so you can get some more info United States Army Air Forces - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

    I would suspect this to be a theatre (overseas) made example.

    I have seen this colour before.

    Cheers, Ade.

    It is just a custom made one, IMO. Soldiers paid local tailors to make the custom patches since it was a trendy thing to do... So the colors of the patch depended on the colors that the particular tailor had.
