The badge looks a good one, but I feel that i've seen the very same one before. Is this being offered on the Aukro auction website in Czechoslovakia? Or is it a private purchase from a member here who picked one up in the last few months or so? There is a thread about it, but unfortunately he didn't use the forum picture uploader and consequently the pictures have been lost, rendering comparisons useless.
It's the brass hinge pin sticking out of the left hand side of the hinge itself and the excellent finish that remains, as well as the black background that makes me think it may be the same one, but I can't be 100% sure for certain.
