Hi Guys,
Need your help on this one.Just found this 506 pocket patch in an attic close to bastogne.According to the old woman i met , it comes from a GI offered as a gift right after the war.I know stories are... what they are... but would appreciate your opinion on this one.Diameter is 4.92 inches
Thanks in advance, kelso.

About 20 years ago, there was a pocket patch faker making these patches out in California-He also did widowmaker Deuce patches and 501st Geronmo patches.This was the style of manufacture, so I'm not 100% positive, but pretty sure this is one of the fakes from that same series of Repros.
