    Hi William, I think you may well be right that yours is gold, I have a what I believe to be a heavily worn silver grade award. Mine appears golden but I think that is the "hue" coming through from the base metal as the finish is now so thin. Yours looks to be a much deeper gold in it's own right. Here's mine to compare with, Leon.Click image for larger version.

    thanks for the feedback thus far. How were these awarded, what do the numbers actually signify? Are they recipient ID's somehow, similar to a number on gold party badges or does the numerical value correlate with what class the badge is?

    Here are some other badges in Gold, but these numbers are very low unlike mine and Gottlieb's but yet the badge pattern and construction are entirely the same:

    and here's something else very interesting. Glenn66 owns this badge here:

    it is Lauer as well, but numbered in a completely different location on the reverse and the construction of the award itself is entirely different, being a hollow-backed stamped badge whereas the others seen in this thread are all semi-hollow versions.
