The needle is Sharpened, or?

Thank you!

The finished is not original, looks repainted.

Thank you! But the colour of the needle end is different from the Rest. Is this normal?

Normal or not. It all comes down to how the badge was stored. After all we keep seeing mint awards from time to time. There is no way telling when the pin was made sharp.

Badge is all ok IMO.
