As far as I have learned they are not considered legitimate but I would like to hear what others say. I have even seen them folded over and padded. John

Hello,

These are considered reproduction. Here is a link to one I posted for comment.

There is another link provided in my post.

BeVo U-boat Badge

Hello,
These were sold in the 70’s as reproductions. I bought one myself from Unique Imports it was $4.95 and sewed it on my windbreaker. Not for my collection, or should I say I am not too “K.E.E.N.” on them.

Regards,
Jody

Indeed
The construction doesn’t match original bevo designs.
Lots for sale at a tempting price in England and USA for those who are unaware

Kind regards Chay
