    The first thing I notice is that the oval has never been sewn on a tunic so I wonder why the wings are on it.
    Could you remove the wings for a flat picture of the oval ?
    The wings are what I believe to be WWII.
    Thanks

    As Steve says, the oval looks too new. I believe the sterling marked
    pin-back wings are WWII era as well..........
    Regards,

    A few minutes ago I mixed up the FSSF oval with the 506th oval so I am correcting this post.
    It is obvious that my recent shit for brains transplant was completely successful.

    The oval is correct for the 506th Steve, but I think we are
    still unsure about it being a WWII type............!

    With all the hype over the 506th - and the 101st in general - because of a
    couple of recent Hollywood productions, the price for these insignia
    and other associated items has sky-rocketed.

    If you can buy it for the price of the Para badge alone, it would be
    worth it. I mean about $25 to $40. My guess is that it will have
    an over-inflated price because of the attached oval
    - genuine or not.........

    Gents, the oval shown is post war, the wings wartime..Airborne oval backgrounds that were worn during the WW2 differ from more modern ones in that they have a more narrow border and that they often are more "football" shaped than "racetrack" shaped. Still a nice badge wether wartime or not !
    Prost ! Steve.
    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
