    Welcome to the forum.

    I'm sorry but I really don't like this badge. The pitting has already been pointed out and the base material is wrong. If the injection marks are for real the badge should be made of zinc, it isn't, you wouldn't be able to get such a high gloss on a zinc badge.

    The injection marks on the back have been cast as part of the badge, their presence is not due to the way the badge was made.

    Adrian is 100% correct. This is a copy of the 'Numbered mold' type 1.1.3. made by arch faker Carsten Staegemeir.

    The two badges came from the same die, look at the flaws on the back, many of them match exactly.

    They're both fake.
