So I recently got into collecting these and have paid between 50 cents and $10 (Pearl Harbor ones) for them. Most of them I have paid $3-5 each. These were PX patches from WW2. There are some variations in them, as the borders are red or blue, etc. 

 

To note, I believe that many of these could have been sold off base too, to tourist, etc... but I have found a bunch of these in groupings as well, so I know Soldiers and Sailors purchased them too. 

 

If you have any that are not shown, please let me know, as I would like to purchase them from you-- to add these on my 3rd quilt under the home front section. 

 

Also, if you have any that are not shown, feel free to post it here

Very nice, Steve! I don't have any for sale, however did want to share these two that were acquired as part of a grouping to a flight Nurse in the 5th AAF. I don't believe I see this variation in your collection.

Please feel free to post yours. These are not expensive but they are fun. I would love to see what all is out there as I hope to search for new variations.

Here is one that I don't believe is in your collection.  But 70 year old eyes can be a little suspect.  It looks like the ones MasonK posted.  PM me if interested. Thanks, Al
