    Well,right off the bat,is the Finish and the crudeness of details in the design. The finish looks like it was applied yesterday-especially the silver portion. Remember,this badge would have to be almost 66 years old at a Minimum and yet there is no hint or trace of any toning or aging. And the edges of the eagle,for example,are Rough and totally crude in appearance. This isn't even a Good fake-Some fakes are almost impossible to tell without in-depth examination,but This one is not one of them!

    The best thing to do would be to compare it to known originals. The differences will stand out plain as day then!
