    Default U.S. Division/Unit Patches

    Hello everyone,
    I have over 100 U.S. and a few other Allied division/unit patches that my Grandfather traded for/ acquired during his service as a Commanding Officer in the U.S. 70th Tank Battalion. I believe most of them are from WWII and some from post war. I would appreciate if anyone can help me identify some of the less obvious ones and also looking for info on which ones might be more rare or desirable.

    Thanks,
    Thistle

    I honestly don't know where to start! If anyone can suggest rare or sought after patches that I should be looking for, that would be awesome.

    Hi Mate

    Probably be better to display better fron and back.

    Going by one image it is a tad difficult however you have 5 Ranger Bn , Rangers Diamond and 93rd Chemical Bn, Ist Allied Airborne , you have post war patches and tab mixed in there.

    Thanks Phil
    I realize I can post them one by one... front and back... the photo was just meant to show how many I have... and I know that they aren't all WWII Era. Looking for at least info on what is more collectable and also hoping to start a thread to identify some that I haven't been able to identify.

    The problem you have is there are variations of the same units, which collecting WWII SSI like.

    Over 500 manufacturers produced SSI during the war , so a few interpreted the design accordingly ie slightly changed the design colours etc...

    Are you looking to sell items?

    Thistle,

    I would lay these out maybe 10-20 in a group and take photos, flip them over and get back pictures and then post them up here. We can then better identify what you have. From what I am seeing just from the single picture, I see many infantry divisions, some armored units, some corps and Armies as well as a Ranger Scroll and Ranger Diamond. There are some nice patches, and I am curious about a few that I see in the pile. I believe I see a 93rd Chemical Mortar battalion patch, which if original would be quite nice indeed.

    Thanks Smitty that's a good idea. Here is the 93rd Chemical Mortar Battalion patch. I also have a 83rd Chemical Mortar Battalion.
