    Welcome again.

    Not my area of expertise but when I'm not sure I use the forum search bar at the top right.

    I like the look of yours. The enamel seems to be of a higher quality than most fakes and the pin set up appears to be correct.

    Here is an example that was given the thumbs up. It looks like a match to yours.

    But look further at other examples (link below) until someone with more experience opines.

    Thank you! I thought the enamel, lettering, and pin plate was similar to other early examples of early supporter pins I both own and have seen, but I've read elsewhere that some believe the FR maker to always be fake. Hard to tell. Thank you for your input!

    Not sure about the maker issue. If these are fake, they are of good quality. Let's see what others say.

    Yours is an authentic piece. There are fakes of this maker, but there are clear indications on the fake pieces.
