    Good, the front actually looks OK, but the back i just horrible, the pins, and it is way too blank and smooth for it to be original.

    Thats exactly what i was thinking...it's just too clean in the back.

    -I bought a big box of odds and ends and this was in it . I was pretty sure this was BS, but it's nice to have a second opinion.
    There was some odd Canadian shoulder boards, some RCMP collar dogs, nothing amazing to write home about, but for 20 clams you cant go wrong.

    thanks cat.

    Guys, both of these are fine and pre war quality!

    Backs of insignia can be smoth or detailed: all down to maker and manufacture method.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Eagle certainly looks good and I would take Ade's word for it on the cockade.

    Are you sure Ade? It looks like a copy to me(I am kinda new to this, but those pins stick out like a sore thumb to me).

    Whoa...thanks for the heads up Ade
    ...I really did think that they were fake...the back is so clean and smooth, it seems really light weight wise, and there isn't one scratch or paint chip

    Sometimes you find mint stuff even 65 years later.
