Look Back – What’s in a Letter

Three years ago I was posting on What’s in a Letter. This post covered the sometimes confusing letter designations used by the collecting community.

A – Arrowhead Shaped Patch

J – Jacket Patch a larger patch of varying shapes to be worn on a jacket

R – Round Patch, typically 4 inches in diameter or less.

X – Odd Shaped Patch, any shape not described above.

P – A Blue Book addition for any patch which looks like a wedge of pie, typically for triangular patches worn on neckerchief.

F – Flap shaped patch

See the original post for more letters, be sure to read Roy Weatherbee’s comment as well.
