Fake Kendo/Jukenjutsu Proficiency Badge?

This looks fake to me ... signs of casting PLUS .... no kanji on the back.
Were these badges ever made without the "NCO," "1st Class", or "2nd Class" designations on the reverse?

Ryoyo informed me that many proficiency badges aren't marked on the back; he linked me to Rich Catalano's site for examples.

Original.
From November 1940+ period.
