    Hi Glenn,

    I see where you're coming from buddy, an in hand inspection would really be needed to be certain one way or the other. Mind you, on the last pic, there can be seen solder around the catch that has not been covered as you might expect if refinished, so maybe it's O.K.?

    Regards, Ned.

    Yup, I noticed the solder also. Being no metallurgist, I do wonder however if the gold refinishing process simply doesn't adhere to the solder?

    Well, that's an intersting point. I have noted that solder can be plated by the gold finish certainly on Hauptmunzamt Wien (30) badges, as it can be seen on both my examples (one shown below), and neither of those are refinished for sure. BUT, the finish can be seen to not have adhered too well in some cases and can appear to have been lost or as is often referred to as 'evaporated' or 'absorbed' even though they are tombak/brass rather than the notorious zinc type.

    Of course, I can imagine some of the other makers may have fitted the hardware AFTER the finish was applied, and this could also cause the appearance of the uncoated solder joint. Just thinking aloud here...
