    Hi yorksman,

    You need to glide on past these two, both are fakes.

    Here you go. Side by side, there's quite a few differences. Note the wreath is completely different, also compare the leaf vein patterns closely and check out the huge clawed toe and general foot area against this original badge. Overall all the details are off when studied closely.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi, Ned as ever is 100% correct, the biggest give away that this is a fake for me is that it looks like the bird flew to close to the sun as it's beak has melted, it looks more like a second hand condom! Leon.
