Here's another cootie patch, I think this is made by the patch King company.
Neat Cootie stuff!
I remember the Patch King from when I was a kid. They made, and sold, a ton of US patches over the years. Good memories.

Been meaning to post my cootie helmet so, here it is.
"There is no such thing as an expert, only students with different levels of education."
This is my multi-barred Military Order of the Cootie membership badge. It has bars for all three degrees NIT, GRAYBACK, and COOTIE. The ribbon is in rough shape, but for items like these, one takes what one can find. The mark on the reverse states: COPYRIGHT / PATENT / BY M. O. C.
Found this one in a flea market about 10 minutes ago
Lets show something I found
Is there anything on the reverse of these insect pins that directly associates them with the Military Order of the Cootie?
I picked this up at a local flea market over the weekend from a vendor- It is sans the ribbon- I got it because I remembered reading something about this order on the forum and funny this thread should pop up tonight
back -sorry best I can do without my flat bed scanner-its down at the moment. Can you tell me about the hallmarks on the back, please? thanks. dave
