    A definate cast fake of the AS badge, i think.

    The original AS badges featured a horizontal pin set up.What is interesting here is we can see some sort of guide where the horizontal hardware was applied on originals,yet the hardware on this copy is vertical ??

    Hi, sorry mate but as the fella's have already said, this is a cast fake. The reverse of the badge shows heavy "pitting" from the casting process. Leon.

    Agreed-a crudely cast fake. Hope it didn't cost you an arm and a leg!

    Hello,
    It is not even close to a real AS badge. Here is my example and you can compare them, can you see the differences?

    Regards,
