    Hi again Bob

    Sorry to say - again bad news . IMO this is a copy of well known crook in this hobby - African Hero.Obverse looks promising.
    Just on the reverse : check micro holes on the tank ( signs of casting ).
    Check the rivets - the shape . I had attached bottom of an original . If you are looking for original marked / unmarked JFS numbered tank badges - rivets should have small tool marks marked with arrows. And a very nice shape.

    I hope you did not buy this badge yet. Is it the same seller as the clasp ?

    Regards

    The '25' numerals are different from known originals too.

    Shape of the 25 number box is wrong too. Stewy
