5 Kresowa Dywizja Piechoty Badge Variation


I recently purchased a variation of the 5 Kresowa Dywizja Piechoty uniform badge. It is shown next to a common authentic cloth variation most forum members will recognize, for size reference.

I am looking for additional opinions on the period authenticity of this badge. I believe it to be a very rare stencil painted plastic variation.
It is composed of a very thin and semi-flexible rudimentary plastic sheet, with a painted base coat in yellow, and a brown paint stencil border and bison.

While I have not seen this variation before now, it does resemble the same manufacturing process as the Syrenka, 8th Army Shield, and 3DSK plastic painted badges also shown below for reference which are known to be authentic (those images are not mine and belong to their respective owners).

Let me know what you think about this 5 Kresowa Dywizja Piechoty badge variation.

Thank you.
