    Hello,

    Does anyone know the source and approximate date of manufacture of this patch? I assume it is a postwar collector copy.

    To me this look's like an original ,the stiching is not so dense as it would be on a modern machine version .Either way 1940s latest 1950s terrific workmanship and detail .

    I agree with BIP.

    However, this is not one I have had in hand before, so I don't know for sure. Some of these patches are tricky, because the squadrons never had them during the war, but had them made just after. Some of the units continued on as well, but this one did not. I would not be in a rush to get rid of it, unless you would prefer I care take it.:)
