What I thought were dots turned out to be stars.

Default My harvesting badge.

Shame about the pontoonist's badge. I suspect there are more copies than originals of that badge.

Here's my harvesting badge for comparison.

Thanks guys for your feed back, they came from this 20 euro box so I'm happy the Master harvest badge is good.

An original Excellent Pontoonist goes for $ 200 - 400, depending on variation. To find an original one in a € 20 box would be like winning the lottery.

Hi guys,


I am really surprised to see the Pontoonist badge is fake, that is an amazing level of detail in the stars under the red enamel work. Really well done fake, would have fooled my untrained eye for sure. Well spotted guys.
