Default “75” GAB - Orginal

A friend asked me if this original. I’m far from an expert and would appreciate all opinions. These are the only photos he sent me. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Fred,

As the others have said, very nice original JFS 75 with excellent finish remaining. Beauty!

Cool Hi Fred

Very good eye Bruce, thanks for linking that old thread

Some questions were raised in this old thread, so it would be good to see some more detailed pics of the rivets and hardware, and some weights and measurements if possible. I still think it is 100% original JFS badge, but you can never be too sure in this hobby, especially with high priced badges like this one.

Tom

Thanks for the old thread. Like Tom said, good pictures of the hardware- especially the catch, will help solve this one once and for all.
