It might stand a chance. Is this a Hauptmünzamt Wien example? Not sure about the catch. They do not trade for big bucks in this condition - $60 to $80 maybe. NH
This badge appears fine to me. I see no red flags and looking at the pin and apparent remains of finish in places on the reverse, it's a gold one. As prices go it's subjective but the lower end given above is ballpark.

I agree with Ned. A good but heavily aged badge. I have seen Gold examples on web with the same catch and pin. Price in this condition under 100. NH
As stated, it is good.
