    I saw this on the illustrious EBAY and am curious if this one is real? Im not seeing any RZM markings on the back, but this is turning my head for some reason. Why i am asking... consider it a self-test. Thanks for your opinions.

    that reply has helped me understand a little more about the minefield of these cap badges,i do see the left eye is a trait on both original and genuine ones,im still baffled by the so called"zipper mouth, and moustache fakes",im just not there yet on these, there are so many different makers with different features.im enjoying learning though, and thank you for the information carlsson regards george

    Pics added to the post and thread moved to the correct sub forum.

    PLEASE always add the pics to your posts: links die leaving a useless thread.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I must say that the front is well done, only the sutures is obviously different.
