Default WW2 Pegasus Patches

Is there any significance to some 1st, 6th Airborne Divisions woven/embroidered felt patches and printed ones - rarity, value, time period?
I've recently bought a printed one which looks nearer for a display collection I'm putting together but wondered whether the woven one is earlier/more valuable.

I don't believe there is that much difference between printed and embroidered versions of the Pegasus badge especially when you're just looking for an example to display. Be aware there is a plethora (always wanted to use this word in a sentence) of privately made embroidered examples that are collectable but I don't believe they're much more expensive than the printed versions.

The only example that is highly collectable, and more expensive, is the Italian made version, photo attached.

I was completely unaware of that example - cheers!
It goes without saying that that one would be ideal as I'm displaying the badges which appear on the 8th Army Thanksgiving pamphlet.

The woven cherry type is also more difficult to find than the issue printed ones or glue backs.
