Reproduction of a badge that never existed! See the mistake?

No. But if anybody needs the foil sticker Slingerland tags, I've got around six or seven of them.

I not a Slingerland guy, but for starters the font for Slingerland is incorrect, and the overall shape is a bit too short for its width. Real Slingerland badges were a bit rounder. Also not sure if the badge should be brass colored and raised where the grommet would cover it. I'm sure there are more mistakes.

Its not just the loops in the l's, although that is the most obvious feature. The entire word is incorrect. Here I believe is an example of the real deal. I don't understand why someone would go to all the trouble and then reproduce it incorrectly, or why any collector of vintage drums would buy it.

Mark (BosLover) is correct. That style Slingerland script on the supposed 60's repro was actually used on Niles badges from '70-1/2 to '86 (never on a 60's badge). There are other issues also but the script being a decade off is laughable. Horrible repro, buyer beware!

He wants 30 bucks a pop for fools not in the know.

Nothing get's by the crowd that gathers here. There's someone or more for every brand. How much MIJ stuff can you get by jonnystix, or Slingerland by Slingerfan, or Trixon by Diamond or anything Zildjian by Bill or Zenz ?? Know what I mean ?

I'm certainly not an expert, but I'm very detail oriented and know how to search the internet effectively.
