Is it fake?

Yep. I think this is not original piece.

Is it made to claim as original?

I have doubts about the last one.

Too nice quality.

Actually very well made piece.

Quality of manufacturing bears a strong resemblance to modern japanese miniatures.

Of course there are numerous slip ups.

The diameter of superimposed enameled star, reverts, form of the pin, form of hieroglyphs on badge and star, box layout, ribbon material, etc …

So here are three possible versions about origin of this piece.

Version № 1 This set was made for collectors (but than why there are no usual declaimer on reverse – like we have in case of Kites???)

Version № 2 This set was made as double for lost original set or as second day-to-day set by the receptor. Day-to-day replica?

Version № 3 This set was made as fake to be sold as original to satisfy collector demand.

Very rare and old unofficial golden kite badge (I think many of you are familiar with this rarity but I just coudn`t resist... )

No ribbon?

Of course it’s a long way to the top (USSR and third Reich fakes), but first steps are already made.

The only reason for such low fake standars – there are not enough demand for high class fakes in high classes.

But even chinese fakes are on the raise. This is the last vintage.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
