Over the past few years, the internet has been overwhelmed with fake badges of inferior quality from India.
However, there are also fake badges offered by English sellers. Lately (over the last 2 months or so) this is the case with well known badges, which suddenly appear in "unique" form on eBay. These generally are English club badges (or centre badges), which are offered in pure bronze or gold colour, without any enamel added!
Beware of these products. These were never offered by the original club/centre. Here is the latest example, of the Lin Mog centre. In your own interest, don't bid on such items!
