    Winkelman has done a great job of giving you noteworthy details to look for. The stitching on the back toward the edge of the tab is a classic Delta characteristic... You were wise to submit this tab for opinions! Good luck with your collection!

    To elaborate a little on the subject ;
    this type of fake has been sold & made famous by Delta International - California , but was originally produced by Reisenhaft Enterprises ( Kurt Nesbitt ) , New Jersey .
    Info & the following picture of 4 fakes courtesy of mr. Bob Hritz .
    As early as 1969 , they were certainly ahead of their time and still pose a threat to the unaware today .
    Note how close the stitching is to the insignia , and this would be close to the reverse edge when cut & folded ..

    Detailed picture of the telltale " small knots " structure of the black background .
    This is hardly noticeable on still mint wooly fakes , but many have been tempted to artificially age them - and that " wear " will bring out this exact flaw .. !
