That's exactly why I think it is a copy. The devil is in details. Small differences in eagle's feathers, talons, beak, crown, bullet and surrounding it ornaments. Enamel has a lot of impurities. Unless there was other manufacturer then Michrowski of this particular badge, for me it appears a copy. It dosen't look at all as Michrowski's product, and I don't think he changed his dies after all. I wouldn't buy it before closely examine it.
