    The ring, ring holder, and colour of the metal are red flags for me. The runes are not deep either. It is a minefield when it comes to any badges, especially SS ones.
    Sorry IMO its not right

    Also for me John the eyelet distorts the circle. Stewy S

    The lettering's way to soft to be original too. Stewy S
