Default 2nd REI insigna for Indochine

First of all, sorry for poor scans. Is this in your opinion an original Indochina period insignia? This design was adopted in 1946 but the marking matches with a 1936-40 production.

regards
Mario

The 39-40 design was used in the early postwar period !
A nice example .

It's an Indochina period piece. The markings were shared between ww2 and Indochina - there are slight nuances in the marking style on your example that would suggest postwar rather than 1939-45.
