Badge "Parachutist Instructor".

I submit a recent purchase of mine, an Air Force Parachute Instructor III° class badge. However, on closer inspection comparing it with other badges of the same type I have a few doubts. It's about 1/2 mm shorter in both length and width, the blue shading under the canopy is really splotchy and the eagle lacks some of the detail present in the others. I realize I'm probably being overly paranoid, but I haven't seen many graded AF instructor badges to be able to compare well. Does this look legitimate?

Re: Air Force Para Instructor Badge

Hello,
It's a modern copy of communist period badge.
Genuin badges are quite common.
