There are (3) different old unused embroidered cloth patches. All of tyhese picture Smokey Bear, and they read as follows:

There is a ©1963 Smokey Bear advertising premium book mark / 6'' ruler from the Maine Forestry Service. It has three images of Smokey, and it also has a calendar of school days on the back.
There is an unused 1993 Smokey Bear calendar planner booklet. It has small 1993 and 1994 calendars inside, and a daily planner calendar that goes from December 1992 to April 1994. It also has two different rulers, 1993 Holidays, name, address, & phone number pages, note pages, metric conversion tables, United States area codes and time zones, State Arbor Days, and Smokey Bear advertising. The booklet was from The New Hampshire Division of Forests & Lands, Forest Protection Bureau, and the National Association of State Foresters. There is some wear and wrinkling, but it is unused.
Next is a small magnetic dash board Smokey Bear “SNUFFIT” head. You would put a cigarette out in it instead of throwing it out a window. It had been used.
The final item in this lot is an Ideal toy Smokey Bear stuffed doll figure. Unfortunately he is not complete and is in rough shape from being well loved. He does have his “SMOKEY RANGER – PREVENT FOREST FIRES” plastic badge, his “SMOKEY” plastic belt buckle and belt, and his “IDEAL TOY CORP.” cloth tag on his denim blue jeans. He does not have his Ranger hat, or his shovel.
All nine of these for one price! To judge the sizes the comic book measures about 6-5/8'' x 10-1/8''. These items appear to range from poor, all the way to to mint unused condition as pictured and described above.
