Default Does this SA armband roundel seem crooked?

Maybe it's just the armband not being level, but I think the roundel looks sewn on crooked. Therefore making me question its authenticity despite the RZM tag. Even if slightly crooked, is that a cause for concern from a valuation persepctive? Seem like a decent price for a minty one if legit.

To be honest, it wouldn't worry me one bit if it was sewn on slightly crooked, however I think it ultimately lies with you if you're happy with it.

Value is only what it's worth to someone, and to someone that wants one then I don't really see it affecting the value of the piece that much.
Having said that, I can't comment on the originality of the piece presented, I will leave that up to others who know this stuff better than I.

I think it is just the way the material sits that makes the roundel look crooked. Looks like an original piece. You can probably find one of these cheaper if you have patience.

Really? I felt this price was pretty reasonable for how minty it looks. Shows how much I know

The owner did e-mail me back and confirm the roundel is sewn slightly crooked.

Someone on the forum offered me two other ones that are more minty (no pinholes in the bottom corners) for $90 so I'll get one of those.
