    This is bogus IMO... Not the correct material or construction...

    Some will have the extra piece sewn in.. Some will not.. But the ribbon or piping should look similar to this.. There are some that resemble the item shown.. But were made at a earlier date.. Bob Coleman is the expert on these.. Best of luck G..

    A poorly executed fake, I'm sorry to say.

    I can not tell exactly from your picture, however, the roundel has a slight ovoid shape in the originals.

    The roundel is crudely cut and improperly shaped, and the swastika is considerably off center. Not good.
