    You are right to ask because as I am sure you know these are very widely copied both as copies for collectors and to be used by reenactors but also to deceive!
    I think it has a chance as the construction looks correct and these were made by several different makers both for odnance supply and private / tailor supply.
    My reservations are that the letters look a little uneven in dimension compared to each other but that might be an effect of age. Also the material of the arc itself looks a bit "soft and fluffy".
    I am leaning towards originality but I would try to get it checked "in hand" by a cloth badge specialist.

    I hope this is of some help.

    Regards
