An old friend was cleaning his closet and threw out this old patch. Iaskedd and he said yes -take it. He was a merchant marine and said he traded with a fella for his patch.
Is it original? Could be a good start for patch collecting...

Not discounting the current discussion of them in the "secret" flap..
