    Hi Luc, I recognize this one from an ebay auction that just closed. The seller had misidentified it as a Gr.Techn. product where it is actually a Kirkwood pattern.

    Unfortunately there are several things that bother me about this one, in particular the incorrect "3" used in the serial number. If I'm not mistaken the Kirkwood "3" had a flat top. At least my genuine example does. Gary's our resident expert on the 1SBS badges, and he'll have the final say.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Thanks Tony, Gary mentioned the same thing. So how about the one in these pictures? It has a rounded 3.

    Same type of incorrect "3", undersize font, and a "classic" "aged" oil quenched spinner ..
