The patch is original WWII. The tab is also original, but it appears to have been removed from another patch.

Hi, thanks for you replies. First I am sorry I did not post through the forum message system - and thanks for posting the images @tarbridge. I used No_outside_hosting before but that does not work anymore. Thought a link was allowed, too. I am sorry an will keep this in mind for the future.
Thanks for giving your opinion @Allan. I appreciate your expertise on this matter. I am trying to distinguish the good from the 'bad and the ugly' ;-) Judging from the picture alone, I noticed that the back weave in the patch was different from the tab. Besides, the tab is a fraction wider, it seems... So I agree with you patch and tab were not produced together. The patch is a little worn around the tongue and the beak. It's not as crisp as some others are. But the back has this nice thick back thread that one sees on WW2 SSI. The lettering in the AIRBORNE tab looked a bit clumsy and made me doubt, but from the looks, the tab was fine also. Besides looks, there's the feel etc.
@firefighter: yeah this is a patch that was listed on eBay. What do you think?
Thanks all for you comments.
