    Is it silver plated, and then polished? to make it less shiny in the field?
    Or were they produced this way?

    They were sometimes silver or nickel plated, which can tarnish

    When I got this badge it was very straight and new. The colour Wasn't "aged" or worn but appeared new from factory.
    I showed it to some other collectors during the Market Garden weekend, and they all thought is was to new.
    Traded it with the seller for a good example!
