Default Kuban shield real or not?

I recently acquired this and never seen one could someone please give me some info. I can't figure out how to post a picture but the shield has no eagle on it just flat across the top. http://tinypic.com/r/1ran9l/9

I belive you but why would they fake a shield that was never even made? I mean I've seen fake shields but this one I don't understand why?

Talking That my friend

......is a question I couldn't answer. It may just have been someone's first foray into creating a FAKE badge, maybe a practice strike of sorts. We could speculate endlessly on the why.

It is a curiosity...I'll grant it that. There is a missing 'L' in LAGUNEN, the name KRIMSKAJA is misspelled and NOWORO-SSIJSK is completely buggered.

That is really one of the worst attempt I've ever seen. Never seen so many mistakes in one time!
Just a a laughable shield.
