Supplementing posts 209 and 210 from 2010, it seems there were four patches issued during WWII.
Below are three patches from my collection followed by a fourth, another version of the fully embroidered patch, shown in Millstein, p 69.
Type-1 Millstein's First issue; silkscreened on leather
Type-2 Theater-made; embroidered on wool
Type-3 Millstein's Second issue; theater-made fully embroidered. I have scanned Milstein's image and shown it under the other three. The stitched lettering, a raised roaped embroidery, is similar to Type-2.
Type-4 Fully embroidered. The issue more common to collectors, if one can say that about a rare patch, but not the one pictured in Millstein.
The three shown in this first image: Type 1, below which is Type 2 (left) and Type 4 (right).
Below, for comparison, Type-3, shown in Millstein, p 69. It looks to be theater made.
