    Default WW2 ruptured Duck Patch?

    Hi guys, I'm just wondering if this patch is original WW2 manufacture? I take it that the end of WW2 was the only time they were issued, not before or after? I have got loads of these all in unissued condition, I just wanted to make sure they were legit before I put them up for sale.

    Many thanks!
    Andy

    Thanks Ade, I thought the same about reproduction. I imagine there would be a shedload of these produced at the time and they are still very cheap as originals.

    emblems were inside little plastic containers in a 5 cent

    This is a original example but as stated before they are not worth anything here in the us they are a dime a dozen!! you could sell them at best for maybe .50 to .75 cents on a good day each !!

    Andy: I know nothing about ruptured duck patches but these were my grandfather's. They are original.

    On a side note, a few months back I got a text from someone in response to my Ad on CL for helmets. The guy tried to sell me a 1930s Luftwaffe pilots ring, asking around $6,000. It was a ruptured duck ring. That was comical.
