I don't know if this is good or not, so I open it up for comments.

River Section 512 fully embroidered looks very well made to me I don't like the "long" threads from the base material.

It's neat looking,but I'm thinking it's a copy.

Hi Bearmon,

I'm thinking repro also. These are pretty rare patches and the first batch were US made and then I believe viet made. The biggest thing I see with patches like this as they are usually small. The original patches are 4-4 1/2 in.'s tall and these usually are way smaller. The other thing is the PBR should be in white and I know there are typo errors but the letters in the right hand of the scroll should be NA VY. I also don't like the khaki edge with loose threads.

Regards, Mitch

Mitch, thanks,  I have a few of these  "US fully Embroidered" looking patches, This one bothers me because of the loose threads also.  That is normally my main concern with these but it is very well made and is over 4 inches tall.  It makes a good filler for 10 bucks.

Thanks all for the responses
