Fake – Ona Yote Dance Team Jacket Patch on eBay

Ray Gould has pointed out a new fake on eBay. The seller is from Germany. According to Ray;

Please include a post oin your blog to inform those that read it that the seller patch–world (Germany) is producing fakes and attempting to pass them off as real. His example of the #34 dance team patch is a clear fake (fully embroidered) and may even be a 3″ round (instead of a jacket patch). The auction has been bid up to $150+. Looking at his feedback, it appears that he has given refunds to those who have been dissatisfied with receiving a fake (especially when purchased under the belief it was authentic). He has kept all bid activity private (usernames are completely hidden and not scrambled like normal auctions). I notified a friend who I suspected might bid (he was under the belief the item was authentic and had placed a significant bid). Please spread the word.
The seller has other Scout patches for sale, but this appears to be the only one from New York.
Dave Scocca advised of a Nentico Lodge #12 Fake from the same seller a few days ago.
The real item is a twill jacket patch. A picture of the ‘real’ patch is shown below. The image is of the patch in my collection, which I provided to John years ago.

    The seller stated this patch was a 4″ patch and offered me a second chance offer for one at $150.00.

    I told them that $10.00 is what it was worth and they have not gotten back with me.

    Thanks again Ray for keeping me from losing over $150.00 on this fake.
