I agree with vintageproductions and Bill Scott that this is a copy. One thing I have noticed on every original I have seen is at the top of the 4 where the diagonal line meets the vertical line, there is very little open space between the two pieces where the red shows through. Usually there are also several single strands on black thread connecting the two pieces. You can see this on the patch Mr Scott posted and two originals I have posted below. On the patch in the original post, there seems to be a clear separation between the two pieces and the red threads between are clearly visible. Hope this helps in your future hunting.
