    It sure looks bronze to me. Are these photos taken in natural light? Maybe a couple photos under different lighting would help.
    Here is my silver to compare.

    Hi Guys

    For me, this one is a frosted, silver/white electroplated example that has darkened or toned with time.
    Poor storage, moisture, etc. can turn these frosted finished variants a bronzy, golden tone and give the appearance of being a bronze grade ISA.

    If you look at the reverse of the badge in question, it's my opinion there are still areas where the frosted finish can be seen.

    The second example is another Aurich that has started turning brownish color in certain areas but, obviously this one is a silver grade.

    And, here is a Hermann Aurich in my collection that has also darkened with time, but still has a little frosted finish remaining in a few spots, especially around the hinge plate that is crimped in place.

    And finally, here is my bronze grade Hermann Aurich ISA.

    Also, notice the hardware is bronze in color as well.
    With the hardware attachment part of the reverse die process, the set up would have been coated when the badge was finished.

    Not in the best condition but, one of the most difficult ISA's to track down.

    Best Regards, fischer

    That was my reason for opting for bronze.The original one posted shows no signs of silvering on the hinge plate.

    Hi Ralph

    Yes, with the angle of these pics it is difficult to see the hinge plate inside the crimping recess.

    Here are the Dealer pics. I have increased the size of the hinge area.
    I believe you can see the silver white hinge base-plate under the darkened areas.

    Best Regards, fischer

    Thanks for posting those photos fischer!
    Had I seen those to start with, my choice would indeed be silver.
