    Merrowed edge patch which would make it post WWII. Likely made of synthetic thread, too.

    Read the article below to discern WWII patches from modern:

    On Mark Bandos site it says that the 506th patches were one of the few that were merrowed during WWII. It supposedly came from a WWII vet as well.

    Not sure what to believe. This looks new - like a modern patch.

    What gives it away that it's modern? Is Mark Bando wrong and they weren't merrowed edge?
