Geronimo! Best Patches & Insignia From WWII

March 16, 2010

I don't think I've ever seen a single WWII patch go on eBay as high as the 501st Airborne patch did last week on eBay.  When you consider that an it beat out several other nice pieces in this top-5 list you know its strong.   How strong?  Click to see the final price but let's just say it was north of $2k!  I had the patch blanket as the featured item in last week's Hot Finds email and was glad to see it eclipsed the thousand dollar mark in heavy bidding.  It will be a real treasure for the collector who brought it home.   The "Devil's Brigade" patch didn't do too shabby either considering it was missing the pins that would have been affixed to the patch.

I have a 501st original jacket with a mint Geronimo patch. I would like to sell it, what should I expect? It was given to me by the owner of the jacket in the early 70’s
