    It is not WW II. I really can't put a date on it and I am very suspicious of the back of the patch. I don't believe I have seen a back like that on any WW II patch before.
    Lets see what the rest of the guys say.

    Sorry the one posted is a reproduction, my father has two in his collection a patch not commonly see but not terribly high in price. You can get these for less than $70.00

    Yeah thats a modern day computer generated repro patch. One of the ways you can tell is the reverse white stitching has a pin hole effect.
