Sorry this is a poor cast fake of a rare badge.
Do you live in Vancouver? There is a guy that has been trying to sell a badge like this one forever with no luck.
Indeed a fake,sorry. Stewy
THanks! Haha, yeah. Vancouver. I've been offered quite a few fake items here :|
Yes, that is indeed true. There is quite an abundance of dealers here in Vancouver that have an assortment of many, many fake and reproduction items sold as 'originals', so always be weary.
what an ugly fake...
I agree with Bob-looks like it was cast in a High School metal shop. William
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
I thought it might be helpful to show what a couple of originals look like to compare with the horror of this fake. Note all are hollow backed.
There are several production varients of these badges as they were intitially produced in Portugal and locally in Spain, finally later being made in Germany. Hence the different dies and pins used.
