Not a big fan of this patch. Haven’t seen a period made patch fully embroidered like this one. Back also looks pretty sloppy

I'm not keen on it either.... way too much thread.  Vietnamese shops generally used as little as possible to keep down cost.  

 

There was a series of reproductions that came out about five years ago that were just as heavy in their use of thread.  Most of their items were USAF.
