I would rather buy from a reputable dealer when it comes to paper items.
Yes more expencive, but at least you have a better chance for having genuine items in your collection
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

Impossible to say when it seems no one on here has had any experience handling/owning an original --- me included. I'd suggest you contact that collector through the link I posted, maybe you'll get some worthwhile opinions there. Paper items is a very specialized area and you'd be better off listening to someone that has experience and perhaps would know of specific types of known fakes and the traits to look for in real ones. Subjectively I like it --- that's about it. Good luck!
It's an original. They came in three sizes, this being the smallest.
