    It's zinc. But better pics are still needed for a positive ID. Stewy

    The really crappy pic's don't help a lot when trying to give an opinion on this one, it would be appreciated if you could try a little harder if you want folks to put their balls on the line trying to help you out here by attempting to do this.

    Rant over.

    It looks to me as it MAY WELL BE a rather rarer type by an unknown maker (#14) that is renowned for being one of the heaviest made at around 36g in weight. The badge would have had a recessed catch in a slot, but this has been repaired and covered over, there are no known variants to this particular badge, which I think is a referred to as a 1.31.1 type. Better pic's are needed to confirm if this is certainly the case.

    I stick with my original opinion, it's a rather rare badge but too bad about the repaired catch.

    Pic's are much better.

    My opinion is it's good. It had a field repair on the catch(which, apparently, did Not keep it from getting broken again) but it's genuine. The repair and damage does affect it's value quite considerably, though.
