    By the way I did a black light test and it passed.

    The black light test is not conclusive, if it was made in the 70s or 80s there is a good chance it wont glow.

    What are the qualities that point to this collar tab being fake?

    I've seen this variant before, but with a rzm tag, too. The backs and construction and material were the exact same as your example. The owner was a gun-show/estand dealer, and he "said" he got them from a vet. He had about four examples in the same unissued condition as yours. I will say, though, that he is not the most honest guy I've meet, and is quite willing to sell a copy/fake knowingly.
    As for the RZM tag on his examples, it was correct, actually, but I am unsure of the collar tab itself. The blacklight test is irrelevant, also, and I have to agree that the bullion looks quite new, although authentic items can look as they were made yesterday. I think the bad lighting in your images is giving us a false representations of what the tab actually looks like in person. If you could upload new photographs in natural lighting and verify before that the pictures portray its accurate characteristics, it may prove helpful and I'd be grateful as I've always wondered about said example. I don't see them being sold that often as a copy, or authentic piece.
