Sorry to hear that my opinion was accurate, and has been verified. It is never a good feeling to discover a prized item is actually fake.
Although I wasn't around in ca. 1960-70's, I have been offered reproduction visors from its era on several occasions. I've discovered that In-hand the quality of the visor, especially the insignia, but many other things too, are just not up to par with what one would expect in a original example, such as the ones FB has posted.
If you compare the two, and are able to comprehend the finer details; that can be achieved by many hours of study, it's quite obvious why the example you posted is not a original item.
