I’m not so sure.

Voiding on the tail doesn’t appear to go high enough IMO. Also the voiding in between the forelegs, on genuine examples it goes into a very crisp upside down ‘V’ where the legs cross, on fakes it’s less crisp and there’s almost a flat edge to it.

I like that it’s a deep strike with thick edges however look at Rockapes post #62 in this thread. A fake with 3 loops also appears very deeply struck.

But devils advocate, why brooch a fake badge? And the traces of braze look to be in correct position for a genuine badge.
