    Unusual,indeed. Can't say that I've ever seen another like it.

    I thought so too. I've been searching for a while and never found another like it. It was acquired with a group of medals and badges directly from the vets family, people that had no idea what they had. (Lucky for me) So I believe it has always been like this.

    ? a replacement pin bent to suit?
    I see the hinge plate does not match he rectangular location for it - maybe the soldering let go on the original?

    Interesting observation. Thanks, makes sense.

    This L14 design has been widely debated among collectors. There are quite a lot of different L14 or L/14 variations out there.

    Thank you for the link,/Jonas...interesting thread. I will weigh in on this too.
    I know my L14 is an original badge because of the circumstances in which I obtained it. There is no doubt in my mind. But how can I be so sure when I have no solid proof? It was not in my possession since 1945. That being said I also admit that I do not understand why there seems to be so many variations of the L14. Obviously there needs to be more research done. I will leave it to the young.
    Best regards,

    On the plus side, the elliptical wrap around sheet metal hinge is of a type this maker was known to use on it's hollow black wound badges, and also interestingly, a very rare hollow buntmetall silver type. Sorry, but I can't find a pic of this.

    I did not comment before this because I was unsure of this maker's mark. So far, I have found nothing to support this being an authentic F.O. award. There are known stamped and raised maker's marks and none of them match this example.

    I know it doesn't really mean anything but here's a couple pics of the group it came with showing the condition they were in before I had them cleaned by a jeweler. That's the L14 sitting there.
