    Hi guys,

    I hope you're all doing well!

    Recently, I got really interesting in WW2 patches, here are pictures of patches that I am willing to buy. Can you help me make sure that they are WW2 period ?

    I reckon from top left to bottom right :
    - 1st infantery division
    - 83rd infantery division
    - Don't know (blue one)
    - 75th infantery division
    - Don't know (big A one)
    - 103rd infantery division
    - Don't know (VIII, i know I saw it somewhere but can't recall what it is)

    Here some Armored Division patches : 14, 21, 11 or 2?, GQ and 7
    I am a little confuse because the one top on the top right seems to be written whith roman numbers! It is something that was done for those kinds of patches? Maybe a totally different meaning?


    Here a patch airborne command

    I think they look good and from WW2 era (even if I know that we can't really differentiate WW2 made and just post-war made as they still used the same manner of manufacturing them until the start of the 50's), I am getting really interesting in collecting patches but I don't have a lot of knowledge and certainly not an expert ^^!

    Could you guys please help me tell if those are good or not ?

    Cheers! Take care

    Blue one is the 88th infantry division
    “A” in the circle is US 3rd Army
    The one with VII in the middle is the US 7th Corps

    Sorry I can’t help with authenticity but some one will be along soon

    Hi Gaël

    1st (RA), 83rd (AR)Inf div and Third US Army modern merrow edge-1968-90

    75th and 103rd 1956-1966 Army Green border cut edge

    88th Div and XII Corp WWII

    Armored SSI

    If the border is Army Green border they are post 1956 sorry images are not clear, if the border colour is like ETO then they could be from WWII-1956

    Airborne Command and ETO is WWII

    I don't know much about patches, but I think the ETO patch you posted is genuine. I have one that I know is genuine WW2 issue, because it was my father's and it has been in the family ever since WW2. It looks to me just like the picture you posted.

    Hello,
    I would like to have your opinion on a patch of the 82nd.
    I am not too knowledgeable and difficult for me to differentiate between a WW2 and a post War.
    Thank you for your analysis and your time.
    Cordially.

    Hi Fabie

    This is a early to mid 1960's 82d Airborne

    You can tell because of the use of polyester thread
