Yes you are right, this type of pin catch is used on a particular copy of a pilot badge seen often on eBay and dealer sites . I have never seen this type of set up on a fake air gunner . There is a fake air gunner badge that is seen often and is very similar to this badge , the give away clue ,if you look carefully , is the number of trailing wing feathers on the back wing , the fakes have 9 these ones have 10 . I can only imagine that this type of distinctive catch has been used on modern copies . I am 100% confident that this badge is original .
