    Hi Tony,

    A fine original GWL Para. Looks like a very rare version, with white wreath instead of their typical black wreaths.

    I like this one. Only GWL made zinc wreaths, all other makers were buntmetall. The eagles could be either buntmetall or zinc, the one above is buntmetall. The rivets are correct as well being deeply set post types, the other acceptable ones for GWL Fallschirmschutzenabzeichen are the donut variety. The hinge, pin and catch all appear correct to me, all in all a very nice piece imo.

    Regards, Ned.
