I think this is a good Jmme badge my only concern is the silhouette of the back of the badge there just seems to be something wrong with the cut on the lower cutout of the wings.
Anyway I would add this to my collection knowing that Jmme badges are well copied but I would chance this one.
The hook does look as though it has been replaced with a piece of brass rod .
Value is whatever you think but considering my own opinions I wouldn't chance paying too much till I had it to hand and could do some better comparisons.

Agreed-a good JMME. Personally, I like it despite the catch repair-which could have been period done, from the looks of it. The gilding and silver finish are great on it. There is Just a hint of enough toning on both pieces to give it an excellent look. If the seller is not asking a heinous amount for it, I would see nothing wrong with picking this one up. Nice personalization as well.

Hi, if the price is right, this is a fine looking award. A good amount of original finish and the repair has been done well, I agree that it appears to be a period repair as well, so that would not put me off. Leon.
