The basic beret itself is original. I will let other more qualified comment on the insignia.

The badge looks rather "clean" ....

Both Ade’s and Gary’s comments reflect those I gave you via PM.
A genuine beret, small size common to the surplus unissued ones still relatively common on the market, dressed up with a reproduction bullion eagle, and topped off with a rank star. You’ll note the wear on the rank star is inconsistent with the fresh looking eagle. All the evidence suggests a put-together piece.
