I am not sure I understand the issue. Is he selling fakes, or is it something else?

Thanks,

Terry

Thank you Gentlemen, I was thinking that was it, not being anodized,, but wanted to be sure I wasn't missing anything. He does have one I might be interested in.

Terry they have acquired a large collection, some selling for good money, starting off at a low price, so bargains to be had, price ramping as a few people try to acquire these items, most are fine though a few copies, they must have made the money spent in acquiring this collection back in Spades!

There have been some Very Nice badges!
