    I guess someone thought they were an artist?

    It has been 'enhanced' no doubt about it! Can anyone say if it's original? From my phone the pin looks post war?

    Without further reference material on these awards I can say that (a) there is no manufacturer markings and (b) the mounting for the catch looks odd. Not saying its wrong but...it casts doubt in my mind.

    It's supposed to be a type 3 badge, but as Glenn said, has some issues.
    It is not the first time I've seen a badge painted, but as always the question remains, period or post war.
