U.S.-Made, Fully Machine-Embroidered, Cut Edge Shoulder Sleeve Insignia of World War II: And How They Were Manufactured, A Collector's Guide Hardback
by Hans De Bree
This highly detailed reference book is for both novice and experienced collectors, and is focused on the World War II U.S.-made, fully machine-embroidered, cut edge shoulder sleeve insignia (SSI).
It provides guidelines that can be considered when determining whether a SSI is original World War II era manufactured or not.
Also, the differences in SSI manufacturing are explained in such way as to create a timeline in a patch collection.
Knowing these details will add to the personal value of a collection and make it much more than simply just having a group of patches.
In addition, the book will help collectors avoid spending money on something that is not what it seems: copies; reproductions of World War I, Interwar, or World War II SSIs; and post-World War II SSIs.
This information will add to the experience one builds as a collector and historian.
