Greetings Gentlemen,

I recently acquired what I feel is lovely Eagle Squadron insignia.  I would love to hear your opinions on this piece.  I thank you for your time. 

Best Regards,

JustinG

I have ordered another blacklight.  Should be here in a couple of days.  Is the blacklight test the only test I can perform?  I have done a search on the forum.  Only a couple of topics show the Eagle Squadron eagle.  and none are free from a uniform tunic, so the reverse is unable to be verified.  I purchased this recently from Barry Turk at emedals.com.  I have had good luck with them in the past.  I would love to hear other methods as well. I will share the blacklight results when the blacklight arrives from Amazon. 

Thank you for your time in this matter.

Best Regards,

JustinG

Justin,

Something I have tried before, take one of the loose threads and put it next to a flame, if its modern it will melt and older textiles will burn as no plastics were used in their manufacture. Not fool proof but can give an indication of age.

I used a black light and there was no glowing.  Also I grabbed a loose thread on the blue backing and it burned up with no residue. 

 

Thanks Simon and Michael. 

 

Best Regards,
