I have compared this badge with photos all over the net; trying to see if it is an original but I just haven't the eye for this sort of item. Could I prevail upon you more knowledgeable folks for opinions?

Ken,

My opinion is that it is a cast fake. The edges are jagged and the overall appearance doesn't have the quality of an original.

The numbers on the back have also been stamped with a different punch.

The last shot show the pitting well.

I agree with Stan's and Tony's appraisals...let this one pass.

This is how the bottom should look like...

I agree with everyone and the case is also a reproduction.

Br. James 02-28-2020 02:46 PM

Good point, Erich, and the case doesn't even fit the badge...or vice-versa!
