    Default fake russian artillery button?

    Good day,

    I recently purchased 2 russian Artillery buttons, but one of them looks quite odd to me. In the picture it looks older than it appears in real,very light and unmarked.
    I have another button which is heavier, marked on the reverse and looks also better made. Question is: is this button a reproduction as I feel? It wouldn't be a big deal for $0.99 but I'd like to know. Thanks for your comments.
