    Default SS Cloth Eagle arm/shoulder Patch---real or fake?

    I found this in the bottom of a box of 'junk' at a sale. I figured it was repro, but I only paid $2 for the entire box, so I figured I would not be out anything, so I took a chance! BUT, when I got home, it does NOT glow under a blacklight (see pictures--I have a new towel next to it to compare how new fabric does glow). I know the 'blacklight' test is not always 100% accurate, but it did make me think twice! Thanks in advace for all your opinions!

    Itīs not an original SS eagle IMO. Maybe someone else knows what it belongs too or if itīs even authentic?

    I thought with the black fabric it might be SS. But, if its not, sorry I posted it in the wrong forum.

    IMO itīs a reproduction of a SS eagle so you sure did post it in the right forum. However iīm right or wrong about it weīll wait until the real experts had said their thoughts about it.

    Bummer. Well, I figured I would take a chance for $2. I guess that just goes to show that even if something does not "glow" under a blacklight, that does not mean it is original! Thanks for your inputs!

    At $2 it was worth the gamble!

    The blacklight is a useful tool, but it is not conclusive in it's own right.

    If anyone is interested in SS cloth insignia, I would recommend Jack Angolia's book, but it is long out of print but worth tracking down and buying. Not cheap though, but the investment will pay you back.

    Cheers, Ade.
