    Default GAB '75' for approval

    I have compared this badge against others for sale, and it looks OK to me - but I know better than to trust my judgement on expensive items! What do you think. Pics are not wonderful, but let me know if you want me to get the seller to try again (this is 2nd attempt).

    A fake I'm afraid Al. These same photos were used on another forum recently and reiieved an unanimous thumbs down.

    Hi Al, the pics are poor but I don't like it.

    The end of the to hilt the bayonet is certainly different to what I have seen on an accepted original.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I'm not liking it, Al. It might be just me, but the "75" doesn't look right-the "5" in particular looks "fat" on the curl. Maybe some better pics would be a help on this one. When you're dealing with one of these, it's always best to be cautious. William

    There are several things wrong compared to accepted original badges by JFS. The '75' numbers are different, the bayonet hilt - as Ade points out, the trimming outline, the rivets and the hinge is wrong to name just a few.

    The hilt looks more like what you see on the 25 and 50's. William

    Thanks. Looking at one on The Collectors Guild I can see the differences you point out. He also has this PAB 100, which looks to be less finely detailed than a 75 - couldn't find a 100 example.Click image for larger version.
