Artilllery school badge copy/fake

Hi,

this one is definitely a fake. Look at the missing/hinted rivets. The brand new
screw plate and the pin looks like a glued nut.

Andreas,

I agree with you, the second one is a fake, but the first one looks OK to me - besides all the details been correct, it's impossible to fake this enamel flaking. I hope it's yours, because they are quite rare.

Andreas,

I am afraid I can't tell anything specific about this one. Couple of years ago they made some excellent fakes - the main difference is the enamel, that's a little wavy where it meets the metal, and of course they have no wear traces. I am guessing that with time they have already developed some convincing patina.
