Would you be kind enough to supply evidence please? Speculation is one thing, but evidence is another.

Hi Andrew,

The "splurge" around the central part of the crown is the first thing to look for on fake helmet plates. Originals are much more tidy. The centre would appear to be genuine.

Certainly does look like mine :( I hope you can put it right as I could get quite a speed up on my trusty tricycle. Not to worry though, mum says she'll get me a trundle truck for Christmas :)

My recollection was that it was actually dirty white metal and not brass, but as I don't have the badge anymore, perhaps Phil can confirm. Why would it be made in brass, it doesn't make sense? Unless...
