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.
