    Maybe it's just the pics and I am totally wrong but it looks like a lead copy. Is it very heavy and does it bend? Hopefully I am wrong.

    Also, you might get more responses if you moved this to the orders and decorations section.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Glad to hear that Gary. I no longer collect such items and you should get some knowledgeable replies in this section. It was the soft details and also the silvery look to where it appears to have been scratched on the reverse that prompted my train of thought. And the lack of the upper pin mounting assembly.

    Jerry,
    I see your point, ...
    The scan is slightly deceptive .... The back is filthy, and the scratches are more in the oxidation ...
    One thing of note is the patch on the reverse where the original top pin mount was set .. if that is any pointer ?
    (Both pictures should "supersize" and zoom).

    No worries. No worth a great deal as these are very much at the bottom end of the market, in poor condition and with bits missing even more so.

    Hello Gary, I think yours is a good original but well beaten unmarked FLL pilots badge.
    Allthough there is a lot of wear to the front and I do note some markings to the front of the wings where the rivets have been re tightened (or replaced) I think this is your bird please see the pictures below
    All the best
