USMC Division & US Army Patches Real?

These were part of a group I picked out of an older collection that was being broken up. While I want to believe they are WWII-era, I'm not entirely sure. Their embroidery looks a little too new to me, and little things like the 3rd MarDiv not being symmetrical are leading me to have suspicions. I may be completely wrong, but I wanted to see what more knowledgeable eyes thought. Except for the Manhattan Project patch which looks to be typical construction, the 2nd, 3rd and 5th MarDiv are wool felt while the 4th MarDiv, 1st MAC and AAC photo spec are twill. I didn't pay more than a couple bucks each so if it turns out my suspicions are correct it's not a terrible loss. None of the patches front or back glow under blacklight. (The carpenter's pencil is for scale.)

 

Any comments and help is greatly appreciated!

They look perfectly original to me, most of them were at one time glued on a cardboard panel as if it a binder.
