I recently picked up a WW 2 USMC grouping of pins, rank insignias, EGAs etc. also included was a thick USMC clutch back gold thread embroidered Marine type patch. ( it still has the H&H sticker with its 631 Ser.)
I was hoping if anyone has seen anything like this, that can advise, what exactly I have, its purpose, and if it has any purpose other than a display. I have never seen something a patch like this with the clutch back. I would seem that it is supposed to be somehow worn?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.

looks like a blazer pocket patch  worn on the pocket of a sports coat.
