Default Gebirgs-Offizier-Feldbluse Insignia Opinions

Ski-jäger, Gebirgsjäger, Jäger? Anyway, a nice Officer Feldbluse with a widely discussed and controversial sleeve insignia.
Do I:
1) leave it alone?
2) remove it?
3) replace it with a known original jäger or gebirgsjäger insignia
Opinions please.
The collar litzen and shoulder boards are originally applied; definitely a mountain bluse. I know most will say it's a fake type of insignia ... I don't need to hear that. So what would you do with this on an otherwise nice Offizier Feldbluse?
Thank you,
Dan

Impossible to advise without seeing the whole jackets and insignia, collar tabs and shoulder straps? J

If the rest of the jacket is "perfect" , restore it with an original GJ or Jäger sleeve badge ! But in any cases , remove this repro .

Thank you Nick. I never said it was "perfect" though. It's not. It has a replaced eagle.

I agree! Not a fan of that sleeve oval and its application!
