Hi,
This badge is very flat and I wonder if it is a copy.
It's a WM badge.
I need your opinions, please.
Thanks in advance.
Regards.
Loïc

Not a genuine badge in my belief.

The WM badge is very scarce and to date all the examples I’ve seen that I regard as genuine are from a single die.

This is a genuine one.

Apologies for the picture being at the wrong angle, I have tried several times to rectify this..................................failed.

As Andy has indicated, the wrong shape font which is very evident with the letter O, but the difference can be seen on the other letters as well.

Regards

This might help with the comparison.
