8+ (Excellent): Minor wear and tarnishing, and nice patina. There is a slight bend to the cross at top, from wear, due to the delicate nature. Many of these are actually missing! it would be an easy fix for a jeweler to straighten it. Or it could be left as-is for a bit of a been there look. Also, the left (as viewed from the reverse) retaining pin of the central signal flag is present, but loose. This does not detract, since the pin is actually present, and, as a plus, allows for the maker mark to be viewed more clearly. Unfortunately, our photographer did not take advantage of this when shooting the close-up of the mark. We will correct this if the badge is still in stock once I return from the SOS and Baltimore Shows.
GUARANTEE: As with all my artifacts, this piece is guaranteed to be original, as described.
