Default 75 gab

I know these aren't good pics but they are all I have at the moment. Does this badge look OK from what these show. I'll try for better ones . Comments appreciated.

Cool Hi Nutmeg

......You will not need to get any more images. This GAB is a out-and-out FAKE. The big giveaways are: rivets(very bad), the catch(atrocious) and the manufacturer's mark(totally incorrect).

Bad as bad can be! Nothing in common with a genuine badge.

As everyone has said fake. Big give away is that post war catch.

Not that you would need to look at the catch - there is nothing right about that badge.
