Default Phantom GHQ signals

What do you think on these 2 badges?

The larger has a wide letter P.
The smaller has a thick woven letter P.

Search on the forum and internet has shown me different patterns so I am thinking these might be copies? Or is there a possibility that these are ww2 or post war originals?

My impression is that both are artificially aged copies.

All the Phantom signs I have recorded have been square. I have never seen one on a shield-shaped ground.

BOTH as Luc states certainly show signs of been deliberately age faked
