ok, military detectives, here's one for you all...got this in today and went to replace my repro badge with this one.upon examination, I'm thinking there's been a bit of tinkering going on, what do you all think?

have I got an original badge, or a repro which has been very nicely aged and weathered, or is the reproduction just scarily accurate?

i peeled the backing cloth off the repro to see what lay beneath....we have very similar linen.on the 'original' it's similar with loose threads as if a backing's been removed, or it could've been made like that as so many period badges were.one difference is the remnant of backing material on the repro where it's been sewn-in as it were.

so, do I have an original example, or a cleverly aged replica? The embroidery is very similar but not 100% exact, just scarily close.see what you think.....
