    Looks fine to me.

    Not aware of these being copied or restruck?

    The quality of this company's products was always very good. The main worry here is that the company is still around today.......

    Might be worth contacting them?

    Thanks a lot Ade, you have helped a lot. The remark of still existing factory is important. They still have original tools, that`s for sure. Have merry Christmas and a very happy New Year.

    In the meantime I have found genuine France`s day badge - no enamel, quite modest, the same girl`s head (Marianne), Fattorini, Bolton in oval inscription, the one listed on eBay is very attractive but not consistent either with the genuine Fattorini 1917 badge or their mark. It is not probable that Fattorini Bolton made two versions for the same occasion.Besides, gilding in the restriked badge is intact, after 100 years one cannot expect it. One of my friends said once `` If you looked so perfect after 100 years I would buy you !``
