No, not sure at all one way or another.
But a handmade modern copy of what badge?
It is a large curved construction, the aluminium eagle is the size of a regular cap badge, with crude overlapping copper swords on top of what looks like an aluminium shield design?? I did wonder if the aluminium came from the side of mess tin or canteen?
I would be thrilled to find out what badge this crude copy is based on or even if there is another copy like it?
I bought it from a fellow WRF member who had doubts about it himself but as it was only a few dollars I decided to buy it from him. I actually like this badge because it is so crudely produced, and not as well crafted as other handmade "copies".

I collect, therefore I am.
Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.
I don't think that it is a copy of any badge, i think that it is happy imagination and composition of contemporary author :P It last two years there were many similar things on internet auctions. Sorry...
