I can't comment on the RFC shoulder titles in this listing but the RFC buttons are certainly NOT World War I issue as the backmark clearly shows they are the 1970s Gaunt reproductions.

The letters in the text are very irregular.

He clearly forgot to use the word copies in his description, complete dross.
