Don't worry too much, you will get one in due course, the vast majority of these had a bronze finish, often very worn away, try and get an example that retains at least some of it.

Hi Frank, this badge actually has a bronze finish it just does not show up in the pic - some lighting issue. But as it is bad it is already in the fake bin.
