Hi Billy,

Yes, a common copy I'm afraid.

Cheerio,

Roy

Sorry for hijacking this threat.

This is also a common fake/reproduction.

I have had original example in the past but at this time can't locate any image as I'm in the middle of changing computers.

Cheerio,

Roy

Aren't these always cast? That would show a rough finish around the badge, see attachment.

The badges from post #1 and #4 are cut from sheetmetal.
