Default FJ bullion badge

Hi Everybody, would like to post here for review and discussion, before estand, a hand embroidered bullion version (officers') of the Fj badge. Has no particular history or background to be told, just ... I got it many years ago and I just loved it a lot (quality of manufacture, aging, etc.) as I still do now. But still is a fact how, like for many other hand embroidered insignia, opinions may be different as there is not a "textbook" version, and variants might be really many. For this reason would really appreciate your opinions and reviews.
Many thanks in advance.
Daniele
P.S. Tried shots both with and without flash... if you need more, please do not hesitate to ask

Not the greatest construction but looks original to me

When I read the title of the post I pretty much decided it was fake, but upon looking at it I think it is original and one that I would love have! Congratulations

Isn't this one in Volume 3 of Karl's FJ books?

Has anyone ever seen another FJ badge, cloth or metal, with a black swaz? Other Luft badges, Heer badges?
