Picked this one up with a few other badges which I think are good. Not sure about this one. Appears to be a dark “ rusty “ colour with dark patch’s.

No the other twenty on so we’re good, blow holes, crimp marks ETC that’s one of the reasons I posted this badge. Looks like it had been in the ground. Question I would like to know is it a deliberate fake made to look old, or a genuine badge that has some oxidation. I did compare it with other badges posted on the forum, biggest problem I can see with it is to the bottom of the shrouds. Pics taken on an I Pad which does not give the best photo.

Well, I can only go with what I can see in the photographs, I do not think it can have been in the ground because of the lugs, which I do not like.
Certainly not a badge I would buy.
