AAF Weather Specialist with a reverse weathervane.. I like this.. I have a photography specialist insignia with the camera facing to the left instead of to the right..

A variation perhaps made by a manufacturer who reversed the template???

Not sure if you are asking if it's "good" or if you are asking what it is.  So I'll go with both.  The patch looks good to me.  I'm not even sure if anyone is repoping these.  Secondly, it is a USAAF  Weather Specialists patch.  Worn on the lower right sleeve of one's jacket.  This is an enlisted patch and is one of 5 that could be earned.  The others were: Engineering Specialist, Photography Specialist, Armament Specialist and Communication Specialist.  Hope this info helps.

I was  looking for thoughts about authenticity. I didn't figure anyone was faking these but I didn't think anyone would fake the 30s ROTC cuff patches either (I got one in a trade).
