Default ATS Officers Cap badge

I am curious to know if this is a good badge or a fake/restrike. What concerns me is that it doesn't look like the slider matches the rest of the badge. I also thought bronze officers ATS badges only had blades on the back?





Thanks for your thoughts,

Terry

Thank you gentlemen! I don't have it, and was considering it as a possible officers badge for my collection, but will pass, as I already have several badges.
