Description

Snoopy was a popular figure for Vietnam War patches. A military unit would create a patch as an insignia for their members. The patches can be crude, both in their manufactuering and their humor. The representation of Snoopy was always unlicensed and generally looks very amateurish. Military patches are popular with collectors for their connection with history and variety. The values have been increasing over the years with the increased interest in their history.
