    Default VWA Gold: Authentic or not?

    Recently I was offered this badge? What would you say? I am a bit puzzled with the paint of the badge, can it be a VWA silver repaint? The rear looks excellent though.

    100% legit in my opinion.

    you have an original wide-pin L/57 there.

    Hi Evgeni,
    I don't see any problems with it, the badge and case look original to me. Any chance of a photo of the reverse with the pin down please?
