    Thank you for the response.

    Can you please tell me a couple of things that tell you this is a fake. I am going to return this clasp, along with a few other fakes that I bought from a local seller, but I will need a few details about the items' lack of authenticity. Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum and thank you for your comment. It would be very helpful if you can qualify your statement with the reasons you believe this to be a fake.

    Hi guys

    Why I do consider badge in question as a fake - many reasons for this :
    Obverse :
    1.Check the shape of riveted arrow .Osang that is a quality , zinc or buntmetal - badge in question has none ,
    2.Border of the leaves - not sharp at all ( signs of poor quality casting )
    Reverse :
    1.Bogus FLL type pin and catch for zinc badges. Badge in question acts as a buntmetal one.
    2.Very soft edges - clear signs of casting
    3.Wrong maker mark

    Sorry guys - badge in question has no chances as far as I'm concerned. More over - I would highly appreciate if someone can show me pictures of original Osang maker marked buntmetal fighter clasp. I have problems to find such in my files.

    regards

    One more thing - as mentioned , I have problems to find pictures of buntmetal fighter clasp by Osang.
    But check please here the quality of early buntmetal Osang - attached.
    Also - compare some details of Osang's fighter zincer with yours

    IMO - save your money and continue hunting for original fighter clasp with pendant ( as I do... !!! , not easy job )

    Thanks, but unfortunately at this point it is a matter of getting my money back. It is going to be difficult, but I am going to do it. The seller is local, so I can make his life miserable is he doesn't refund my money. I will literally go to shows and tell anyone who approaches his booth that he sells fakes. A day or so of that, and he should become cooperative.

    What I've learned in this hobby :
    1.If making any purchases from the web - post the pictures prior making any payment and get consensus / reliable assessment about the badge .
    2.If making purchases on local shows - agree with the seller right to withdraw the deal within agreed period , I had such cases in the past - it was no problem.
    Today I also returned from local show - trust me , perhaps 95% were fakes and the sellers were saying : yeah... it is original , in my opinion..
    Two things I bought there : ticket and a coffee , as usual . But possibility to train the eye , the hand , to get the feeling - is priceless.

    Wishing you good luck in getting your money back - should not be difficult if he is local.
