I would say all are authentic.

As to value,I think they are all in the $20-35 range, with the Camp Show patch possibly being more.

They all look kosher to me Carl. One or two are available as repros but yours have that aged look so I'd say they are A-OK!

To me the USO patch has the look of a Andrew Butler copy.The overly abundant threads on the back .
The war correspondent Im not sure of.Some great copies have been made.
Some will die in hot pursuit and fiery auto crashes
Some will die in hot pursuit while sifting through my ashes
Some will fall in love with life and drink it from a fountain
That is pouring like an avalanche coming down the mountain.....

Nice looking insignia, could not comment on the authenticity of the USO Camp patch.. It does look rather "sloppy" on the back as far as loose threads...

I believe the Khaki Twill War Correspondent patch is post-war.

Here are two war time example I have (actually, one I've since sold), which are British made. I believe all war time examples were British made, actually.
