    Default Pilot/Observer Badge - Fake?

    OK, I have been dreading posting this one for a long time.....I dropped a wad of cash on this a number of years ago from a dealer well before I got religion and found WRF....

    I want you all to say "YES" it's good but in looking at examples on this forum.....I have that feeling it is my biggest mistake to date.

    So what is the verdict everyone....

    Thanks all!

    Michael

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Hello Michael,

    i think you made an good searching work here in the forum for examples to compare and i would agree with you, that this is not an authentic J2 PO. Many red flags imo to see...eagle, wreath, set-up, rivetting all in details wrong imo.

    Yeah, I have a bogus one marked the same way as well.
    Not a Pilot Observer, just a Pilot - still bad.........

    Hello Michael,
    I agree, it is not a good example-sorry. Here is my J2 Pilots badge, it should look like this with the exception of the different colors to the wreath and eagle.

    the P/O that started the thread is junk.
