    Default French 3eme BCCP Badge

    I am interested in French airbourne and special forces particularly those deployed in Indo China as it was known in the 1950s and any later period FFL insignia and badges, I have a very small collection which I hope will grow and I would welcome opinions on this one, it looks to be a locally produced 3rd BCCP cap badge, the casting is rough but I think it is authentic.

    So, in English : It is one overmolding of the worst quality. One under Pakistan made. This kind of insignia was made in Lyon in the 70's, so now, it's hard to believe at all the local made badges. Ouf!

    Thanks Lebus, the quality is not good I agree, It was a bit of a gamble on my part but thats what makes this hobby interesting and fun, Thanks for your opinion.
