    Hi

    I am a new member here and would like some opinions on this badge.
    I purchased it a few days ago from a man who found it metal detecting on beach in Plymouth uk.
    Hi Nick and welcome.

    First thing you should consider is why one of these badges would be found on a beach in Plymouth. Not a likely place to find such an item.

    Secondly, evaluate the piece, not the story attached to it. This applies without exception. Many collectors have been fooled by a wonderful and apparently cast iron tale when buying an item and have been sorely disappointed when they find out they've been duped.

    It is a fake and most likely artificially aged to make it look good to the untrained eye. If it was found on a beach, I would expect long exposure to a salty environment to have made the piece almost unrecognisable.

    Never believe someone who is trying to get you to give them money when they tell you a story. Look at the item and if it doesn't sit right, walk away.
