    If it is cheap enough, why not get it? It is IMO an original 30 after all, certainly not a rare maker but not so often encountered in nice condition. It could well be period drilled for sewing to a uniform for the soldier who either couldn't be arsed getting it repaired after breaking the catch/hinge or who was genuinely concerned of losing it.

    may be in the $100 range - but it would be
    a badge with no issues.........

    I guess I could cash in some these silver ones for gold. My absolute favorite is the one in the box, where the fellow who gave it to me showed me the bullet wounds he received at the Eastern front that earned him the badge.
