Default RAF PATHFINDER BADGE ?

Would like to know what members think of this badge ... good or not. It came out of a house clearance in Merseyside along with a lot of mixed old tat . Total wingspan is 71 mm, height 20 mm .

Can I ask if there is a specific wingspan length for a PFF eagle or does this vary ?
