Default Fact or Fiction - Parachute Regiment Badge

Hi all knowledgeable people out there,

Just rekindled my badge collecting (wife doesn't know yet) and seeking a genuine (fact) Parachute Regiment badge and not a fake or re-strike (fiction).

Seen this one for sale and wondering if it's good or bad? I've checked most points I've noted regarding fake I.D. such as the 'blobby' left wing under the first top 'feather', extended tips, profile of the inner feathers, crispness, lugs etc., and all seem ok in the images I have attached. The bottom edge of the canopy looks on the slant - is this an indicator of anything sinister or would it be a good one to go for?

I appreciate this is a minefield, but hopefully you have all tiptoed through and come out the other side unscathed - your help to live-another-day would be much appreciated.
