Bonomo (BAH-nuh-moh) Turkish Taffy Duncan Yo-Yo Winner patch. Based on the back of the patch, it appears that you could iron it onto a piece of clothing.

Compare to the Runner-up version which has a smaller diameter.

The exact year that this patch was issued is unknown but it is likely from the early to mid 1940s. "Bonomo's Turkish Taffy" and "Turkish Taffy" became registered trademarks in the U.S. in 1946. However, there is no "TM" next to the name on this patch.

Very hard to find.

This patch design was the forerunner to the more familiar—and popular—three-color Duncan/Bonomo Winner shield patch from the 1950s.
