I really don't know why I bother trying to help some people as it is wasted effort!! A customer is disappointed that the badge she bought (in near mint condition,thanks Sue!) seems a bit lighter than the one she lost! It also doesn't go through her uniform to well so it must be a fake!!! This is on a silver badge hallmarked 1964.This is one of many cases I have had where people have requested I seek out a badge only to change their minds once I get one for them. Nurses....Don't ya just love them!!!!!!

Hi.

Hope that if wasn't one of my (infrequent) recommends Peter. But perhaps, in the future, we will have all badge attributes listed - including badge weight.  Unfortunately we won't be listing pin sharpness (or maybe uniform 'resistance to pins') among the attributes....

There is only one test I know of that is totally foolproof (although I am not willing to reveal this online) but I think, even having proven a badge genuine we would still have unbelievers. I wonder how the 'seems a bit lighter' badge was weighed?!! 

But yes, I also have a mailbox containing questionable items - I do my best to help wherever I can but it can be testing.  But nurses, yeah, I just love them - most of the time....

Will.
