Recently, at an estate sale in Northern California, I purchased a small box of paper items, patches, and buttons. In this box were items that were are dated in the 1940s. All items seem to be related to Arizona, many to the area of Williams Arizona. There are various patches, invitations to Proms including dance cards, and other paper items.
This listing is for 4 band or orchestra patches and one hand written membership card. The 3 orange and black patches are about 5 inches high, the one that looks like a sergeants stripes is 4.25 inches high. All were at one time attached to a uniform and some have small remainders of thread. Some have an older look than the others, but I'd say all are in very good usable condition.
Although there is nothing on these patches that state that they are from Williams High School, items that were in the baggie along with them do state the name Williams High School and there are no other schools mentioned. These patches have a W, so that can only mean Williams.
There is also a hand written membership card. It measures roughly 3.25 by 2.25 inches. One side says "Membership Card in Stephen C. Foster Junior Music Club of National Federation of Music Clubs" and the other side says "Jean Palson (could be Polson), Dues paid in full".
None of these patches are dated, but since everything else in that box is from the late 1930s to early 1940s, I'm guessing these patches are from the same time frame, they certainly look to be that old.
Buyer to pay $3.99 USPS 1st Class Mail Parcel delivery charges.
SHIPPING COST INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased at long as all items can safely fit in to a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding more than a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
