Hello

What are your thoughts on this patch?

I cant find anything to compare it to

Pre-ww2?

Thank you

I'd say it's a souvenir type patch and not a military use type patch. But I could be wrong. Let's see what the experts have to say.

Tourist/Souvenir patch from either Pensacola or Corpus Christi

I’m a former employee of the USS Lexington museum. I believe this is a souvenir patch. However, Lexington was opened as a museum in 1992 and I don’t believe this came from the ship’s museum store. The silhouette resembles her WWII appearance more than her 1953-55 refit configuration with the hurricane bow and updated island.
