    Looks like a good early war unstamped Vienna Mint (30) round pin type, very nice!

    I agree, a lovely 30 with nearly all of its gold finish

    Is it the original finish though?

    Look at the dings on the helmet. The colour is exactly the same as the rest of the badge. If the helmet had been knocked, wouldn't the base metal be exposed in the recesses of the dents? Surely there would be some colour difference.
    To my eyes it looks like the whole obverse of the badge had been re-finished, hence the uniform colour.
