    I notice with your example Sid, they trimmed it really close to the edge and I wonder if that was done to hide the saw tooth edge weave.

    Well this one was sewn on a fake jacket, so I couldn't see the back. The front was very convincing so I took the chance and It didn't paid off.

    With fake bevo insignia, the tells are usually on the back and are often impossible to tell from the front, even harder with a flatwire as you can't see the thread used in the same way you can with a "normal" bevo.

    Yes those are good. I think their should be a sticky thread only for "flatwire" examples.

    You are right Jerry but when I had this fake and compared It with a original, there was a very small details that I could see. I will make a comparative picture of the two.

    Nice originals Hsturmfhgeorg,Thanks for posting.
    Sid what bothered me about the eagle apart from the reverse was the head and beek,And the body seems a bit chubbier.
    Cheers

    Well there you have It, you are correct. It's that head and body but also the cloth.
