Hi guys, what do you think about this 101st patch? I'm thinking it could be Japanese made.

 

Thank you,

John

Thank you! The closest match I could find was on this forum and it was deemed Japanese made. Maybe its British?

Yes I have already told the seller not to end them early. She has already got offers around $1250.

I also let her know the 101st patches are where the moneys at and thats why she just posted better photos.

 

Anyone know the origin of these two patches? German-Britain-Japan-Pakistan?

I can’t find a similar one in the Keller, Angolia, Delaitre, or Bando patch books. The bullion looks different. 

 

I always wonder about the backs being covered up. Having said that, I have no clue if the ones on eBay are real or not.

 

But I do hope the bidders do their homework.

Following both these lot’s to see where they end up. They have both cracked the 1K mark with one group over $1100.00..... people are dedicated to their 101st patches.
