    From the very limited detail on these ambiguous photo's, I still think this is a cast copy. Lack of cut outs beneath the hinge area and the wrong hardware (round wire catch) would make me walk away. I'm pretty sure that a clear shot of the reverse of the badge would condemn it. Certain details on the obverse like the bridge windows behind the funnel appearing 'squashed' also make me leery of this badge.

    Hi, not one that I would want, looks as though a blow torch was taken to it to give it that "aged tarnish" to the reverse. Here's mine to compare with. Leon.Name:  1.PNG
