1st Canadian Parachute Battalion patch and wings - opinions

Recommended Posts

I bought this pair recently on ebay in a lot of other patches. What's your opinion on them? Real, reproduction?

The look worn and removed from an uniform.

Thank you.

By no means an expert but I'm not keen on the title patch - the back looks unlike the few I've seen. These have been heavily reproduced and the repros now often turn up, some suitable aged, as originals.  I actually bought a half size repro. at the Juno Beach center when i was there in 2015.

The Canadian Airbourne section of the british Badge Forum has at least 5-6 threads on repro/fake patches, some of which date back 15 years and more [the wings, not the threads]. :(

No idea about the wings.

Thank you Peter!

It looks like both are repro. At least the lot was very cheap and I bought it really for the other patches.
