Joe,

It's a good badge, the quality of the obverse detail is very nice and the silver is matt, like it should be. The maker just did not go to the expense of creating a detailed reverse die. I would imagine it is slightly heavier than normal since a thicker sheet of metal would be required for a die like this. A :wacky: variation since I do not think the maker actually saved anything by doing it this way.

dan-

you took the words right outta' my mouth...

this will be my sixth example of an imperial

silver wound badge. the reason i am keeping this

one is precisely as you stated:

the obverse detail is excellent with no real

effort at precision in the male part of the die.

and you are correct: this is about 40-50%

thicker than the more commonly manufactered

pieces.
