Look again...that price is 600 British Pounds...not dollars. That translates right now into something like 871.41 US dollars. A wee bit of a difference. And, yes-I would say that the eagle has been replaced. The front edge has obvious moth damage as well. It's up to you about the price, if you think it's worth it. An identical replaced pip should not hurt the value unless it's patina is stand out different from the remaining one.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
I feel a better one can be found for this money , yes the eagle looks replaced but as William put its your choice at the end of the day
Ah, yes. Just saw this. Sorry!
Could this be a period replacement?
I doubt it.
