    Banksy, this is a black badge. The painted finish has worn off
    the front but there is plenty remaining on the reverse.

    Another indicator is that it is hollow.............

    Yes, 'gold' and 'silver' grade badges both have solid backs - However, there is
    a rumor that some hollow-back tombac/brass badges without any
    black paint may have been used as 'gold' grade.

    There are tombac/brass, steel and zinc badges from the WWII era.


    Here is a 'Black' grade, similar to Atle M's badge above
    but with no paint at all............
