Default British Airborne Insignia lot

Members of the Forum,
Would be very curious as to an assessment/comments by the membership regarding the following lot being offered for sale; https://www.ima-usa.com/collections/...ge-and-pin-set . Unfortunately, after several attempts was unable to extract a jpg of the lot. Apologies. Thanks and well done Wooffy, trust you will not too badly mind my purloining a copy of your efforts. Absolutely mind boggling asking price!!

If you are after genuine WW2 airborne insignia, this lot should not be on your wants list.

The 6 Commando is genuine enough, worth all of about 15

Those airborne insignia are not even good ww2 fakes. They have also been around for quite some time to my recollection.

Hi Team

Is this Peggie from the site, a fake?

Note the harpoon shaped spear and the paste back on the open weave backing.

The reason why I ask is that an opinion was asked on a previous thread and only one response.

If this is a fake then the one I posted must be a fake?

According to some it is a post-war made example but I disagree. If you closely look at the ends of the loose bobbin thread you can see that these are synthetic. Cotton ends show a different fraying.

Here's a working link to the thread Phill is referring to:
