Patch identification help (491st bombardment squadron)

Recommended Posts

I came across this patch and the seller has it listed as the 491st bombardment squadron. Doing some research it looks closer to the 853rd bomb squadron. Also, would like help as to authenticity.looks to be in really good condition! Any help is appreciated. Posted ImagePosted Image

What you have is the unapproved emblem belonging to the 853dBombSqdn / 491stBombGp / Eighth AF

Being an unofficial design this design has been depicted in a wide range of applications and styles.

 

IMHO - The image you posted looks like a post war re-pro.

Thank you for your help, I have a better understanding now doing some more research with information provided. Same conclusion of the cloth patch provided in the picture?

I feel more comfortable looking at the backside of the embroidered patch, but there's a lot of guy's

on this forum with a whole lot more knowledge in this area that will hopefully weigh in with an opinion.

Any other thoughts or opinions? I would like to buy it if it's authentic. I trust the opinions I receive on the forum!
