My first thought is, That is looks post war made from the thread and construction IMO.
Boarder line, looks very bad to start with.

To me it looks newish, thin, way wrong and green: I do not like it one bit, seems very wrong to me.
But please wait around for the right folks to give you an opinion

Give it some time, the experts will come. All i can say is that it has probably been shortened.
Thanks for the input!
Thanks Eric, from those pics you posted it is not looking very promising for me.
The period versions of these sports arm stripes are a soft material that droops when laid over a finger. The fakes are very stiff, and the threads smell like melting plastic when burned IMO. Of all places, Snyder had a very nice full length uncut example listed for a long time before it sold. I avoid these personally as there are many fakes. To each his own.
Burn a Original like a Kriegsmarine Badge???
