Question Colonial RKB Badge - Opinion?

Hello Guys,
What do you think about this badge?
I had another one in the past. It was in tombak and have "Ges.Gesch." in the reverse.
This atual badge is made in silver metal and have "S and Ges.Gesch.".
The dots under the red enamel looks like different.
This badge is a real and good badge?
Regards,
Schmidt

Comparing to well known originals l dont see any differences. Letters in the MM too fat? Enamel too sunk? You can find these details much more accentuated in a lot of enamels from the TR.

Great job with the side by side comparison. Thank You

Maybe we get opinions. Quite a few have viewed this thread.

Yes. There are the expected differences in every badge made in a large ammount during more than a decade, as there are in every Third Reich item. Every TR collector know it.
Im not specially interested in this discussion and this is a very cheap item not very attractive for me, but nothing can be seen by this pics to judge this badge as a fake.
Any case, if you have any serious evidence please let me know
