    Looks original to me. An early black badge, made out of brass, with most of the paint missing. Some collectors prefer them with all the paint intact, but I think there's a charm to examples like this one. As long as they are sold as black class badges, and not as gold, as some dealers are wont to do.

    Is there a maker's mark on the pin? It looks like there's one there, but I can't make it out in the photos provided.

    It certainly looks great. I agree with B.B. in which I prefer worn or very worn Wound badges 1939 in Black.

    They can be very attractive. Although some collectors prefer mint examples, those with a lot of wear and tear have their own appeal. I bought the example below from Espenlaub last year. A bit more of the paint visible on this one.

    A shame about the bent catch on the one posted above. Apart from that, it's a very respectable badge!
