Just got this. New to me, but then again I've not really dived into patches a whole lot. I believe it is a legit WW2 Para patch variation. The border is either black or dark navy. Backing is white, but quite dirty.  Is it Aussie, New Zealand made? Any one have any info on this style?

This is a current copy being made in Vietnam.

 

Notice the computer weave stitch on the reverse.

Gosh, didn't look close enough when I pulled the trigger. Glad it wasn't much! Thanks for the help!
