    Just bought this little lot from Ebay, could use some help on identifying some of the patches/pins:

    What are the 2 patches other than the 2nd Army one?
    Also: What is the Japanese/Asian badge and the red badge with crossed swords?
    I take it the Marine corps badge is WW2/Pre-war?

    The Japanese created a series of badges for distribution to civilians. In many cases the mottiff for the badges had military undertones. However, these were not military awards. These items were created as a means to promote and support the Army, navy and Air Force. some of them were issued to veterans from those organizations.

    The red patch is 7th infantry.
    And the red dot one looks to be 37th Infantry .

    Got the pins and patches in the mail today:

    The 37th and 7th patches look period uniform removed(They are also nice greenbacks), but the 2nd Army patch looks Post-war, it looks like black/dark blue on the front.

    This marksmanship badge looks post-war with a wartime rifle tab on it if I'm not mistaken?(The badge itself looks so new):

    I'm guessing the Marine Corps pin is Wartime/Pre-WWII?

    The dogtags are nice, but I get no results in the archives, not too sure if it is WWII or later:
