Posted also on our sister forum. Similar style to that of the 9th AAF. Cross of Lorraine points to a Free French connection. I know the Free French Air Force flew under several Allied commands, including the USAAF, but not sure if the 9th was one of them. Chain stiching on dark blue felt. All help is much appreciated.

Thanks, Al

Found this. Definitely 9th USAAF.

Any idea on value?

Thanks again to Mark/TBMflyer for heading me in the right direction.

Is would start at $450. It is in the realm of the Russian shuttle patch but less known. Could go to $650.
