Default 1st Canadian Parachute Regiment printed title

Hello,

I believe this to be an original title.
What do you guys think?

None of mine can be peeled away like that, it looks the part but printed flashes should not be able to pull them apart.

Hi Mike,

I understand your concern.
In other places the backing is still firm in place and looks like one with the top.

Maybe the glue has come loose? There are also some folds that indicate bad storage at some point.

Or maybe because it Is uniform removed, it has come loose at some point?

The flash looks good. The backing was sealed to the obverse layer, and with wear / laundering etc they are known to separate. I have several that the entire layers have separated.

Thank you.

Indeed the wear has probably made this one a bit lose at the edges
