    you mean that one?

    [​IMG]

    get in touch with JOSH - he is a guy which paints and personalizes WW2 armed forces garment of all kind

    I think he should know sources for high qual. patches - not the sometimes cheap crap you sometimes get on "the bay"

    contact him via his FB-page: "JOSH`s Flight Jackets" - tell him you get the contact from "THOMAS KAWASAKI" and he should know

    no guarantee but worth a try

    should be an original patch - found on the net some time ago ...

    should pop up if you search for the respective squadron / fighter group

    eBay.
    This one is really good for it s px. But however, if you compare the texture of the embroidery, it shows hand-sewn vs. machine-sewn differences. Modern machine made-stuff [still made by Hand, but through the use of embroidery machine] can never showed the texture of hand-sewn stitches. I doubt you can still find hand-sewn embroidery,patches today ??

    pat.jpg Original large hand-sewn WWII squadron patch's price -with the above stitch texture - went over the roof to easily US$500++ these days !!!:(
    Just randomly picked 2 high priced patches from eBay transaction recently FYI.
    Does it really make a difference ???
    Yes, it does.
    No, it doesn't. Both are right !
