Default Good or Bad?

I am wanting to help a fellow collector with this badge, but knowing I got it some years back from a Canadian dealer who I've found out sold me more fakes than real badges I have my doubts about this one being good. I would appreciate your thoughts.





If bad, I wnat to let him know, and see if he still wants it. And, for the record I no longer do business with that dealer.

Thanks for the input!

Terry

Hi Terry,
I believe the crown should be voided on genuine badges, but I am sure others will confirm this.

Thanks CB! Although it has a nice patina to it form age, knowing the source I seriously doubt it being a good one. I really don't want to pass on a bag badge to another collector unless they know it and wnat it anyway.

agree its not good, the lettering is poor and it should be voided between the "arrows" at 3 and 9
