It may be good, although I'm not 100% sure.
Wait more opinions...

I was about to say fake.but double checked my reference books.....and in CLOTH INSIGNIA of the SS by Angolia,Pg 439 is shown an example (attributed to Shefler)... that appears to have the same wing defect as this example as well as nearly all the other important details....so I'll say it's probably good. Angolia's book does have it's problems, but is 98% good IMO .
Hope this helps...
