I'm not certain of the year for this trio of award patches. The registered trademark in "Yo-Yo" suggests that it is from the late 1950s to early 1960s. The eagle patch in the set was considered first place. More often than not, these patches are usually found being sold individually nowadays. It's very uncommon to find all three being sold as a complete set.

The patches are fabric-based with a paper backing that you peel off and stick. According to the instructions on the paper backing, you can take the patch off of whatever you stuck it to and reuse it. If you stuck it to clothing, you must remove the patch before washing. You also were not supposed to iron the patch.
