Default Eritrea Police cap badge - good or bad?

Good morning

This is the cherry in the lot of African and ME Police badges I've just obtained, used by the Eritrea Police during the British administration. I had, and disposed of, one many moons ago so have been on the lookout for a replacement for the last few years. It measures approx. 4.5 x 5cm, and comparing it with photographs of others it looks good to me, and in better condition than some, but with the number of fakes around Iím a bit paranoid that Iím not seeing some glaring flaw.

What do the experts think? As always any comments, good or bad, will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for looking

Graham

A very good and typical example.
