Default 2° REP insigna

Hi everyone,
can anyone give me a hand to date this badge roughly? The irregular background of the back would date it before 1960 but the Drago Paris mark corresponds to a post-1960 production.

thank you

I believe the 'Drago Paris' marking is from 1955~ on.

I'd say late 50s or 1960s based on the characteristics...

The badge that you have shown is a Period Indochina war piece. Those that were made with the Drago Paris address post-war the hash marks are perpendicular to each other.

This badge can be dated to the Algerian war 1955-1962 period because Indochina badges were marked DRAGO-PARIS-NICE Rue Olivier Metra or R. Béranger.
After 1962 they were marked G.1948. This one also has the light green which is found on some of the early 2REP badges.
