That's the real Monarch 1941, Depot re-dye. Depot wrist knits otherwise original. I have to say I patched it myself. Not to deceive anyone, but when it was redyed in theater, the original patches were taken off, leaving area of where the original patch was. I found out who the pilot was by his name an SN stamped in the liner. I've replicated the patches as closely as I could. Would never want to fake it. Had to cover the area. Since I didn't know if an original patch would come around, or if it would fit anyway. Earlier felt patches were hand stitched. So I did it myself. Over about a year of work. Matches exactly on the inside.
