Will add lack of detail to the Alamo behinde the Indian as well.

 

You will have to remember there is still an active Scout Troop in Northern Iowa that was formed and led by a former Alamo Scout and they were wearing the patch at one time and still do as I recall.Many copies have been made.One of the Scout troop patches I have is a merowed edged patch.Wasnt made to decieve collectores.I also have an original from the veteran who formed the troop.

Yep, that indian is hideous...it is far from what a real patch looks like.

Just a brief glance and it's easily recognizable as a VERY BAD repro. And I hate to even call it that.

Here is a Named Alamo Scouts insignia Philippine made.Both the US and Philippine made ones are light years ahead of the piece that started this thread.Scotty

One nasty looking patch.The back ground looks nothing like the Alamo either.If you look at his 'other items' there are tons of repro's.

YUP sure did, now I cant find the other one I was looking at, thanks for the correction though!

 

 

 

I don't think you messed up.Two different sellers.The one you posted is not the same seller of the one listed in post #1.

The patch sold on eBay about 2 weeks ago for $120 and then he tried to resell it for great amounts. I thought it was a 1960s piece made for reunion purposes. The mouth is aweful. Just aweful. The edges look weird on the backside. If you google alamo scouts the organization has about 6 different types shown. this one is not one of them.

 

Today another person posted another post WW2 japanese made one claimed to have been sold by Bill Scott.

 

With about 400 originals made these two are not one of them. And I'll probably never get to own one of them either.

I agree.The one posted that states japanese made then adding Scottys name to it is an attemt to just legitimize his sale.This is just wrong in so many ways to claim or try to prove originality or provenance.I hope Scotty will weigh in on this.

I have posted these before.Its the patch group from the Alamo Scout vet I knew.I guess you can say its a "named group" but in the end when its out of my collection how would the next person prove it??I got it first hand to the next caretaker its just a story.

Maybe he found out it was a fake and is now bring to dump it for a hefty profit.Doyler beautiful grouping.

If I did sell the Japanese made one it would have been stated that it was not an original WW2 piece in the auction.Over the years I have owned 25-30 Alamo Scout patches its one of my favorites.Scotty
