Default 45 infantry division badge

Good morning,

I need your advice about this badge (56 x 62 mm). Is it a genuine one ?

A similar example is shown in Boulanger item C22 and described as 55mm x 60mm 1939 pattern 'screened on leather.

Indeed, that is not leather at all. It is canvas like material with some sort of sizing to stiffen it.
