    Hello All, purchased this Olympic badge. I wondered if it is genuine?
    Please can i get some opinions, this would be appreciated. It measures 75x73mm.
    I believe due to research, it would be attached to a car? Please can someone give me a money value of this too?

    The reverse side is what we need to see as fakes of these are all over Ebay. A rough cast appearance with no maker mark is the death knell for it.

    The back reverse is needed to know it better, on the front size I'm not sure it's genuine cause if I remember good the rings are not coloured but white only

    I have had a lot of these and I have never seen them in any color other than off white. I even have a cigarette card from an album and it is all off white.

    Here is one with a ticket for a swimming event.
