It is a genuine badge but hinge, pin, catch and catchplate are all new replacements in my opinion- nice repair but clearly wrong. Also the gold on the wreath is modern imo

My thoughts too Patrick - the badge, finish (I think the gilding is OK, but may be wrong) and top hook look OK but the rest of the hardware is not correct.

Regards
Mike

Default hardware replaced

I must agree with Mike and Patrick after further assessment. I guess I jumped to quick after seeing the top hook and the bubbling on the finish. Sorry for not scrutinizing the badge better.

my apologies
Steve

I agree with Patrick on all points. You can see that the hinge is replaced with late 1960's-1970's-style hollow hinge block and the catch plate is oversized, followed by another layer of dark finish and gilding.

Best regards,
