    Gentlemen, how about this para wing? It is listed as original however looks like a cheap copy to me (or am I wrong?):

    It's a "Hartenstein" as they're sometimes called, produced roughly twenty years ago by the Airborne Museum 'Hartenstein' in Oosterbeek, Holland. Pictured below is one with a combat wreath. These are collectible in their own right due to their association with the museum.

    Cheers,
    Tony

    I don't like it. The only one real example I know is made by a die stamp (mint) technique, where back of the badge mirrors the front. Also the screw nut should be different. Below is example from the book by Sawicki-Wojciechowski which I believe is a genuine one:

    Yes that's what I thought. The ones I have are exactly like that - die stamped.

    Thanks for the confirmation.

    That's what I thought. Plus all the badges look like replicas. How about other listings from that seller? Anything worth attention?
