    My reaction, looking at Mike’s picture of the embroidered version, is that unless some more surface–or unless that embroidered neckerchief has a provenance that convincingly makes the case that it is old enough–I would be suspicious. That picture looks a lot more like the modern home-sewing-machine-embroidered fake patches than it looks like items from the late 1950s–and for that matter, I don’t know of many neckerchiefs that old and with that much complex embroidery.
