    I do not want to sow confusion but both your shields looks like very good copies made in Poland.

    The Polish copies are not the same as the ones shown here. Note the black backing material. The Polish copies are done on a felt like material.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This is an original, but sewn on the wrong side of the cloth- not the black border on the back is smooth, while the border on the front is textured. The reverse is true for the correctly made shield shown below it...
