The one thing that stands out to me is this.
On original ones when the glass enamel receives a nasty ding it very often breaks away from the base metal as the glass enamel cannot bend with the metal leaving the base metal clean of enamel.if it flakes it looks the same as the un damaged enamel but a layer flaked off .
On the faked enamel you will see a deep ding but there is always residue left on the base metal and the so called enamel looks duller than the top .This would indicate it is not glass enamel.you do not get flakeing.
Just my observation.

I think that in this photo you can see what you say. Sorry for the quality but I have nothing better.

This is the unmarked type, maybe someone can provide better photos of damages badges or some of the marked 'A. Stübbe' type to compare.

I view any badge marked for the maker 'A. Stübbe' with deep suspicion.
