Default Original WW2 SAS Special Air Service Parachute Wings

Does this look good or is it a reproduction? The auction has ended.

Hi

IMO these are post war wings or reproduction pimped up to look like ww2 one common technique is to add a pin to make it look more sexy. Pin looks old but not the beige backing. This wing doesn’t have the right look and feel.

Cheers
