Default TDB in Gold for review

Hi all.

May I please have your opinions on the following TDB in Gold.

It certainly looks like a genuine Gold TDB but my query relates to the backing.

It seems quiet thick. slightly ill fitting and a colour I have not seen before on other similar badges.

Your thoughts are always welcome.

Is mise
Barry

Looks like army backing. I can’t speak for the thickness of it, ive never looked for that on a tank strip. I like the gold and black weave. The tank looks correct too. I like it. Except for the backing it looks like the one in Tom b. Book.

I agree with the others...backing is not typical for this type of badge.

Barry, you do not need another of these! Save some for the rest of us collectors

Hi All,

It is exactly as I thought. The backing was the only issue for me.

Many thanks for all the feedback and I will leave this one to you Gary
