Looks nice, I wouldn’t say no to it! I would say a genuine title.

Very nice indeed IMHO, I have a pair of the fakes and they have the typical spaghetti stitching on the reverse.

Just a comment about the postage on that fake title from the US. That is both a disgrace and an embarrassment to me. I have mailed many a cloth patches like that over seas for the minimum cost of a letter of $1.30 USD!!! True there's no tracking going that way, but I've also never had one go astray!
