    Hello James,
    Due to the pitting on the obverse and reverse, the lack of detail to the berry band as well as the hinge construction, I believe that this is a cast copy. Hope I am wrong but I do not think so.
    Sorry,
    Ralph.

    That catch is also a massive red flag.

    I can only agree with Ralph's analysis...a cast fake.

    Out of curiosity, can you bend it with finger pressure?

    Because it looks like it's cast in a soft lead based alloy which should bend under finger pressure. Any badge that bends easily will be fake. Genuine TR awards will not bend under slight finger pressure.

    Disclaimer - don't go to militaria shows and start trying to bend badges with huge force! Slight finger pressure should tell you if it will bend!
