It's not a 57er, but the first-model (Sept. 1956 - Nov. 1959) parachutist's badge of the Bundeswehr, made by Assmann. (Prior to that, U.S. jump wings on a black-red-gold backing were worn for a very short time). I see nothing wrong with it.

Here is mine (the catch is damaged):

The FRG should have kept this as their parachute qualification badge!
