    Wait for Big Ned to see this - he knows his stuff.
    There is something about the mark on the pin at the hinge that has to be checked ..... I forget.

    A fake badge. Compare to Ralph's silver example here and note the differences on the reverse and also the trimming outline and obverse details.

    Hi Ulli,

    As said it's a repro badge that's known as "The Aurich 1.8.1. Fake" and comes in various guises including the correct Aurich crimp set up and also with a ball hinge and sometimes marked AS in Triangle. The material used is high quality and the badge rather thick yet overall is undersize all around that shows it's a casting.

    Hope you can get your money back.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    I can only agree with what Ned and Adrian have said, it is a reproduction.

    Makes a change to see a fake Aurich PKA that isn't the ball hinge type. Stewy
