I’ll qualify this by saying I know nothing about bullion insignia. I like the front but have never seen one with the metal loops or rings. My impression is KurtA is correct it’s a repro. Mike

Loops per se are not disqualifying. Metal backed insignia, that it is: bullion badges like this wit a tinned iron plate inside to stiffen it, usually had loops, but they were smaller and brass. These look like someone used loops from a catridge box plate as a pattern. There are issues with the fabric on the back, etc., as well.
