I would be suspect of this pin as well. It is not original IMO,
but wait for more educated responses........
Pin plate looks wrong to me sorry..
Nothing to be sorry about. It kinda stands out like a turd in a punch bowl. Lesson learned: if pictures aren't clear, ask for more or steer a wide berth! At least it was a cheap lesson.
look at the red field,,it has no dimpling in it,,solid red fields are reproductions and the pin plate also is dead giveaway...
I would not like in my collection
Not in my collection, that one's for the bin. I notified the seller, waiting to see if I get any response. Thanks.
hi, i dont think this pin is a reproduction imho and the solid red enamel CAN be found on period pins!! hope you have not binned it? send it to me if you want i will even pay the postage! jmo
I agree with Ewan, its a good variant

I would have to have it in my hand but I like it as well. The pin attachment looks good to me. I numbers looks nice and crisp and the enamel does not bother me. I have been fooled before though but I will go out on a limb and say its a nice original. It would help my opinion more if you know its history and can advise where it came from as far as the seller.
