I picked up this collection from a guy who said his father in law worked as a photographer. He would go to air shows and ask the pilots for patches. He also wrote to the unit and bought  patches from them.  There is a good mix of everything in here. Even 4 ace novelty patches!  Im not good with squadron patches. Are there any rare ones in this pile?

You've got a boatload of USN aviation patches in there.  If you want to look them up, many of them are posted on these four topics on the Naval board

 

Naval Air Squadrons - Fixed Wing 'V' Squadrons  http://www.usmilitar...ical-squadrons/

 

Naval Air Squadrons - Rotary 'H' Helicopter Squadrons  http://www.usmilitar...pter-squadrons/

This is hours of sorting.

 

You have some USAF designs that date back to Vietnam and the 1960's... if these are older patches that might bring some good money.

 

430th TFS (Tiger and the Ball)

 

48th FIS F-106

 

428th TFS (Pirate, and assuming it is not TFTS)

 

4th TFS (Fighting Fujins)

 

581st TFS

 

It also looks like you have some Japan Air Self Defense Force Patches as well.

 

3 Fighter Strike (Samurai Helmet)

 

55th Squadron

 

501st Recon Sq (Woody Woodpecker)

 

301st TFS F-4EJ

The red shield with a black eagle diving, with the blue and white chequed background is a Luftwaffe patch that I had just recently identified on here.
