I am not sure where Luc is but, in my opinion. this badge is genuine having the classic die flaw. It does however, appear to have lost its beak.

Here are two of mine that have the die flaw.

the beak is still there, just a case of a manufacturing fault with the stamping.

Marinus, I believe it to be a genuine badge.

As Simon says it is the classic type with die flaw. Yours has the worst flaw I have ever seen, wonderful!

I was the underbidder.

@Tarabelle: the King's crown badge you show is a well known replica I'm afraid.

Hi Luc,

Thank you very much for your opinion.
Nice to hear that you were bidding too!
I think there are a lot of "doubtful" AAC badges offered there.
Well let's say that that makes "the hunt" interesting.

Regards,

Marinus

That type was made in North Africa and is quite difficult to find.

That is actually quite nice, although, it has not been struck as it should, as a glance at the crown shows in the reverse photograph.

Default More AAC badges for review

Good evening gents,

Another post from me to this thread.
Please allow me to share the other AAC badges I currently own.
Two of them I bought on the web recently and the other one almost 40 years ago in a museum.
I would like hear your opinions on them please.

Regards,

Marinus
