    Dear forum experts,

    For quite a few years I have been trying to obtain an original Parachute Regiment badge for my personal very tiny collection. I have been collecting veterans stories for 20 years now and I want to have my own very small collection of small items now. I have know a few veterans of Arnhem therfor I would like to have your opnion on this badge. I believe it is a fake if I follow other guides on recognizing fake badges.

    Have a look and I am looking forward to your expert opinions! Have a great day!

    Sincerely,

    Frank

    Sadly it is a well known fake copy of the Parachute Regiment beret badge.

    These are known as the blobby fake as shown in the edited image and also because of the extended wing tips.

    Also come on a slider rather than lugs, but the same fake.
