An original and vintage Edgewater Star Detective Agency patch. The only one on eBay. This is not a reproduction.
I am posting a portion of my vinatge patch collection on eBay. None of the patches are new reproductions; they are all original. Most of them, if not all, are in unused condition. The majority of my patches are from the 1960's, 1970's, and 1980's. The majority are from the 1970's. A very small amount may be from the 1950's or earlier. A small amount from the 1960's and 1980's. There are very few, if any, from the 1990's. There is a 99% chance each patch was produced 15 or more years ago. Most of the patches are affiliated with government, security, shooting, boy scouts, Chicago, Illinois, and Cook County.
Please use photos to judge approximate size and condition. Look closely to see if the patch is a sew-on or iron-on. If you have any questions, concerns or comments please send me a message prior to bidding.
