Ross, welcome to the forum.
It appears you've been sent a different award, yet to my untrained eye - PLEASE DO WAIT FOR OTHERS TO CONFIRM - it seems to be another period example.
Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.

I would agree with Carl.
They are both original awards and their condition is not much different. All I can say is, if you are happy with it, keep it, if you are not, send it back and get either the one advertised or your money back. If you don't, it will always bother you.

Hi Ross, you should have got what you ordered, but this badge is good too.
Had good advice? Saved money? Why not become a Gold Club Member, just hit the green "Join WRF Club" tab at the top of the page and help support the forum!
Thanks for the help guys. I'm not bothered about it being a different badge. My only concern was its authenticity, given the situation. I am satisfied now about it being a real badge and once again my thanks to you.
The bottom line is that you have a good original badge in fair condition.
