Textbook Baqueville badge, very well done, I really like it.
Sorry it's a fake IMO. The hardware & reverse is wrong. The obverse details are soft too. Stewy
The first example has a "shadowing" on the oak leaves. A dead giveaway for me. Stewy
Interesting for me, I shall dig further.
The hinge baseplate overlaps the badge. Which i'm not comfortable with & as Tom says "cast" or "spun cast" awards are known to be smaller. I may be totally wrong but it's not one i'd want in my collection. Sorry. Stewy
thats not good news... ive looked at the other references i have and it looks the same. can i take better pics of certain areas to confirm???
