The top and lower one are authentic RVN made examples. The middle looks like the repro garbage sold by eBay seller abqmetal. She has several other eBay names, lives in the PI and works at the US Embassy from what I've heard. She has contacts all over Asia making repros, one to really watch out for. Fakes all services and even surfboard companies, BSA or whatever else isn't nailed down.

Here's the rear of the last one I posted, off Worthpoint, patch sold long time ago. This one as you said is a good one correct?

Yes, it's a good one made in RVN. That seller is eBay's worst as far as patches. Whenever she gets called out she finds a way not never admit anything or deflect the blame to the buyer. I could go on, but I might get in trouble!😆
