This is list in a posting I saw.  Looks to be Disney's Jiminy Cricket in a suit of armor.

 

Listing has it as WW2. Looks to be on yellow felt that has been mothed around the edges. Sorry for the fuzzy pic, but I had to screen shot it. 

 

ID and era ?

Mint in full circle is $400-600

I bet an armor collector would pay $100 for that as a place holder

I'd definitly say get it for 30$, I doubt the chance to own a Disney patch comes up often for that price and the demand is always pretty high for them. I also think that many collectors would be interested it because it could be a good place holder example of a Disney designed patch for any patch collector that is missing an example for their collection. Very nice find!

So it finally came in. This turned out to be an interesting grouping. Not only did I get the patches, but got a set of ribbon bars as well. So I am told these were found in a storage unit and these were salvaged / SAVED from a scrap book. The patches were stuck to paper and the paper id crumbling in my fingers. So the patches;

Is this his history and associated units? 2nd Army, 11th Corps , Un-numbered Armored patch (it's a green back by the way) and then the 275th Armored Artillery patch. I can see it's cheese cloth backed.

 

The Sgt's stripes have been trimmed on the bottom, so it could have been a T-5(?)

 

As for the ribbon bar, Was he a re-tread? I can't believe, but totally possible, they added the wrong ribbons; a WW1 Victory medal for a WW2 Victory and a WW1 Occupation for a WW2 Occupation ?!?

 

I'm waiting on some documents that am told will be in the mail soon. It will show some names but I don't know if it will pin point the vet.

Definitely looks to be cut out around the patch perfectly. Do I see a outline of it being sewn on. I mean a thread impression?. Nice score
