Default Looking at This Badge

I am looking at this badge, but am not sure. My reason being that the aging seems ot be consistent front and back, as if done with a wash. What do you all think - good or bad? If bad please advise why so I'll, know for future efforts.





Thanks,

Terry

Hi Terry,
It’s a no for me just on the basis that the definition is very poor let alone anything else.
Take a look in Eddie’s albums to see how Mons badges should look.
Hwyl,
Kevin

I agree with Kevin, both the material used, as well as the manufacture appears modern and very crude, I have the say that I don't like anything about it.
