OSS Chinese Commando jump wings on eBay

These are on eBay right now and described as OSS Chinese Commando wings. I have a couple metal ones and they don’t look like this one. 
 

I have zero interest in buying them but was just wondering if they’re in fact a variant.

 

They have the shape of several other foreign wings and look very crude.

 

Thanks.

Im pretty sure that Chinese wings were made a certain way and this one doesn’t conform. 
 

Im not an expert so wait until someone more qualified chimes in.

Dealers have sold this style wing as a genuine variation. Of course that doesn't make them real, but it is a data point. The ones you want look like those posted by Ron...

I will pay top dollar for original WWII items pertaining to:

 

OSS

OSS Maritime Unit

NCDU

UDT

Scouts and Raiders

FSSF
