Fake USSR UN Observers Patch

When I saw a USSR UN Observers patch on ebay recently I thought it looked odd. Here's a comparison of the ebay patch next to one of my UN patches I picked up years ago and matches the patch in Stepanov's book (pg. 33).

The fake by comparison to an original sticks out like a sore thumb. Just wanted to pass this info along to the forum.

Re: Fake USSR UN Observers Patch

My pleasure, Alexei. I don't want to see people getting burned on ebay and the number of fake patches showing up is disturbing to say the least.
