Hmmm, do you believe that? That doesn't sound very likely to me. :?

I'll be looking as close as I can at the Plato vest at the UK conclave, as I'm convinced both patch sets were made at the same time.
I think even the owner of that vest has said as much.

The stains and ageing on the patch look too fake; especially compared to the brightness of the rocker IMO.

You can have a look at mine too, if you like? Oo-er ;)

Comparing the photos of the patch to the one I own; mine is nowhere near as stained/dirty, and its been worn on the back of a bikers vest, picking up exhaust fumes and exposed to the elements for over 20 years.

He did have a point about there being no visible needle holes from re-stitching though, didn't he?

Will have to see how the restitching looks on the plato vest and make a judgement call after that. Altho I do recall the 1st replica patch looked the wrong shape, so they made another 1. The 1 on the plato vest is it's 2nd replica.
