The thing to look for is the clarity of the strike. Have a look at these two images to see what I mean. I have taken a close up of the buckle I have shown and compared it with your roundel in the lower image.

Look at all the background lines and lack of clarity on your roundel when compared to mine.

I assume this is a result of the dies being well worn when they were re-used post war,
