    Hello everyone, i was hoping to get some input on this battledress before i invest myself into it? Seems a little too clean to me. If you have anything to say about this post ww2 battledress please comment, it would be greatly appreciated!

    Well, if you want to buy garbage reproduction titles, it is a good buy.

    Check some online Fora. The British and Commonwealth Military Badge Forum is a good start.
    Airborne material is some of the most copied insignia in collecting. It is a minefield and should be very very carefully navigated. RESEARCH, RESEARCH and more RESEARCH. Online, at dealer's shops and buy reference material.

    Depends what you want it for. As a collector's piece it is worthless. If you want a display item.... I guess? Not for me though. I'd rather overpay for an original item than knowingly purchase a piece like this one.

    Just my opinion
