I was preparing to list this fabric, but noticed that the 17th emblem appears to be an owl rather than an eagle. Just to double check is this from this from the 17th or a different squadron? Any help is appreciated!

Not sure what squadron it is but that sure looks like a eagle to me.

Closest I've been able to find so far is the 27th FS which was in the same group which may explain the mistake.

Super piece. Looks like 27th rather than 17th. Where are you going to list it? Bobgee

Threw it up on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/302915258108 

 

If anyone has any input on the price let me know, my price may be a bit "pie in the sky", though I've seen some WWI ones go for five figures...

 

I wasn't able to find anything too comparable besides this from awhile ago:

Thanks for the help and replies guys!
