    Hi Duzig,

    I agree with Don. I am not an expert, but I have been searching for good examples in this section.

    You can compare the badges in the 2 links below with the one that you posted, and there are many significant differences in the quality of the badges, compared with the one that you posted. For example, the eagle, please check how in the original one, the quality is better. Also, check the frames.

    Hello,
    A thank you to all of you for your help with this badge. Wow,I too am glad I don't these badges. In any case this badge is not mine, I saw this badge on a auction site and the price was real low, so I had my doubts about it to begin with but figured if real it would be a good deal. Glad I inquired first. Again a thanks to all of you for your help. It is appreciated.

    Yep. I had one of these a few years back and I remember trying to convince myself that the little notch on the bird's right shoulder was the missing feather - the difference between good and bad - but I was just deluding myself. I got my money back but the dealer simply put it straight back into his catalogue.... As I remember it was Don who gave me the pointers I needed so thanks again Don
