This one's from the "Nickel-Oh-Nasty" (1/509th). Custom oval for senior and master wings. 1970s

507th was inactivated in 1949 at Camp Pickett, VA. They were reactivated in 1985 at Ft. Benning and serve as the Airborne School instructors.

It's not a 507th, it's a post-war 509th, as has been posted above - in your case, just a standard jump wing oval, whereas the other one pictured above has the "hump" for senior/master wings as stated.

Cheers,
Glen.
