Good idea !!! I was looking through a magnifying glass, and I think that there has never been a pin ... no signs of use.
I have seen only two other pieces, and always without a pin. (In facebook group and here Nov )
It is possible that it is unused series ?? I bought this in a small antique shop in the Czech Republic. The two others were also from the Czech Republic .... interesting. All silver versions. Also does anyone have this type please ??

I will defer to those whose knowledge exceeds mine, but I would put this as Ned points out as a 3.3.4 but in between a fully finished version and the rough cut one that Ned showed. Looks like they never got around to putting a pin on.

I would say it is a good original unfinished, unworn badge.
It does not appear to have ever had a pin attached. It did receive it's frosted finish but is obviously unworn.
It appears to have a few storage knocks to it but overall I would say that mint is not far away from this one.
