Original Rising Sun Badge
« on: July 26, 2017, 19:34 »
There are several re-issue/reproduction rising sun badges, I would like to know how to tell the original from the genuine one? Looking online, they all seem to be pretty cheap!

FNQ is correct

( maker's  imprint that is ~)


As many on site know I seem to have an aptitude / talent  for  finding RS's ~ and as a result have 'quite a few' !
Not every one  has the maker's mark ~  there are  variety of  makers as well~ The rarest one I have found to date is "General Plastics" ~
I can only suggest that  if you  want to buy an original you specifically insist to the  vendor that  'he' guarantees or states as to whether it is a 're-pop' or  an original ~
As most know  there are a LOT of  remakes around in ALL things  ~


In fact my off-sider was putting together a wall chart of Australian  service badges and he paid  $120 for a badge to  find it was  a remake ~ The vendor  did  confess he was not aware of the fact and they did come to an agreement  on a reduced price ~


The seller offered a refund but DM was happy  with the  done deal they made ~


But also I suggest  always use PayPal, ( I / we  just Love PayPal!)  ~ as they offer extended  "warranty " on goods purchased. Of course you then have to establish whether in fact  'yours' is  in fact genuine ~


Good Luck YOU ~

Gee whiz I will have to  go  back to work and spell check my early  morning  reply ~ LOL


Extending further ~ Cheap is not  a good sign ~ But I bought  one out of the USA   for $15 USD  ~ original and  complete ~ with  split pin ~ 

Why ? 

I wanted an original patina badge to  compare and use as  guide  to recreate that original patina  and appearance ~
