I'm looking to add WWII French and Belgian Croix de Guerre Fourrageres but am unsure as to how to properly identify an authentic period piece. Any suggestions?

I believe that the "pencils" with the parachutes are Thai and have just been added to the fourrageres.

Thank you for the feedback. I was thinking these were added on post-war.

For what it is worth, the red fourragere on the left looks like it is probably Thai. I do not believe it to be Belgian. The French fourragere in the center is a modern piece. The Belgian on the right MIGHT be WWII, but would need better photos. The "pencil:" is as I mentioned incorrect for thiss cord.

Oh wow thanks! How can you tell it's a modern piece (French)? Do you think these may be WWII?

The Belgian fourrageres both appear to be WWII vintage. The two French fourrageres are modern pieces.
