No good, sorry. Apart from other factors it has what looks like the coffin plate pin attachment - dead giveaway.
Bugger...oh well, you live and learn. At least I didnt pay a fortune for it. Thanks :-)
Tom is 100% correct...it is actually quite a poor reproduction at that. Other than the 'coffin' pin back the colors are all wrong as well as the poor enamel work. You can see how the enamel is uneven all around the badge...you wouldn't see this on a period piece.
Any chance at getting a refund?
I will keep it as a lesson of what not to buy. At least now I have an idea of what to look for in a fake. Thanks.
Look through this thread, will help a lot with getting acquainted with good pieces. http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/non-co...thread-162513/
Thanks Tom, most enlightening.
