This is a version that always has me scratching my head as it is late war period Vietnamese hand embroidered.


Have seen a few of them so have always wondered if they were made for collectors by Cecil Smyth.

I will rescind my early mourning observation of this patch! Well...at least early for me! I will have to side with vintageproductions and treadhead on this patch. After being reminded and having dug out mine for a better look, I would agree with the Cecil Smith reproduction theory. A real one has a lot better detail than this one! Always better to know what you are talking about before you make an opinion!
