Hi Pierre, the front of the badge looks quite pitted to me and that suggests a cast fake. As for the pin, that is not one I have seen before. Leon.

A well known fake that is also let down by the crappy rear cutouts and the fact that it's undersized and under weight compared to originals. As Leon mentions, the reverse hardware is just a fantasy effort.

Hi Leon, Hi Ned,
Thank you, I'm always learning something with your comments and obviously I need to learn a lot ;-)
