Era of the badge pictured is post 1970s fake sadly.

Genuine ones were never solid centre.

The badge was briefly struck in GM in the 1920s before WM became standard and was worn until after WW2.

Ideally what’s needed is a picture of them in a pre-war camp and a few wartime portraits.

Up to you of course but I’d send it back if the damage wasn’t mentioned in the description.
