    Sorry about that, the patch appears to lack the snow back of most ww2 patches, also appears to have glue on the back as do most newer patches to hold the threads together, a simple uv light test will prove that this is a repro

    I would say it's a text book example of being a snow back patch. Compare to the "snow" on the patches featured on this dealer's website:

    Looks at this one, it is being sold as a repro with the same style backing that appears to be snowback but is a repro

    In comparing the one posted here on this thread to the one on ebay listed as repro below I believe gel is right.

    Well done, guys. I'm far from an expert on anything, and for someone who only knows to look for the snowy back of a patch, that one looked okay to me.
