Hi Mike, for me it's a silver Aurich ISA. Stewy
looks like the remains of a bronze finish to me.
These are the smallest IAB's made if I recall and are popular with collectors. I tend to agree with my mate Stewy, it's a silver badge. The vast majority of these have very little finish left, and what is can often be discoloured to appear almost bronze like. It'll be interesting to hear fischer's take on this. Nice addition still though.

I think silver too. Though, my opinion pales in comparison to the giants like Ned and Stewy.
Isn't it that when in doubt, the pin and clasp can tell the story because they don't absorb the wash? The pin looks quite silver to my eyes, which is what leads me in my opinion the most...

I would agree with Ned and Stewy, a tarnished silver grade with most of the finish gone.

I thank you very much for your opinions!
You have helped me a lot.
Where is fischer??
Nice one Ralph!
No doubt my mate will be about later. Remember he's in California, lucky bugger. Stewy
for me this is a silver badge.
If you look at the hinge plate it holds the colour better than the zinc badge.
All the best
