    The patches are good, IMO.

    N.S. Meyer still manufactures insignia today, but I believe the rank pin
    is of WWII vintage - although it could be a 'crossover' era
    piece used during the Korean War.

    I'm not sure just when or how long Meyer 'Shold-R-Form'
    marked insignia were produced, but they are
    quite common............

    Yes they are all good WWII US pieces. The Cat is the 2nd pattern 66th Inf Div. The White patch with the red, white and blue is the General Headquarters reserve.
    The pin is a majors oak leaf made by Meyers in New York.
