    Hi Everyone,

    Been on the hunt for one of these for awhile now to grace the newly formed Normandy shelf. I went along to a local militaria swap meet here over the weekend and picked up this one for a decent price. Its unmarked but I believe it to be the 'daisy' variant, am I right?. Its a zinc made badge that has lost the majority of its silver wash. Otherwise its a nice badge that sits well amongst the other items on the shelf. I also managed to pic up the collar tab skull that is sitting next to it but will post in another thread.

    Regards
    Jason

    Hello Jason,
    The photos are a little dark to tell for sure. If this is original, I believe it would be a first pattern "Daisy" according to Ned's information on my thread here. There are a few good photos to compare.

    I also see a difference in the length of the pin and the catch location.

    Hi Jase,

    I think the same as Ralph, it's a type 1, but better pic's are needed to be 100% sure. Is there a flaw line in the right hand track running down from the mudguard to the ground? This is seen on most type 1's as it started to appear early in production, but is not always there if the badge is a particularly early one.

    Fakes of the 'Daisy' design are very good, but restricted to the type 2, and these can be spotted by the grainy markings that distort the right hand transmission panel and also a small blob on the left one. I show a highlight of this below for illustration only, as it's the best indicator of a fake 'Daisy' badge that is otherwise very hard to spot.

    Regards, Ned.
