I just bought two off eBay as I have been looking for quite some time. One is a metal (I believe brass) painted white which I consider to be an original. Very heavy.
Then I happened upon a NOS which was brand new as advertised in its original package. I couldn't resist the chance to own a new one. The problem is the NOS is made of plastic which I didn't expect. It also has a certain suspicious wavy look to it. I am thinking it may be a knockoff. It looks to be similar quality of the cheap ///AMG self adhesive badges which are so frequently available on eBay. I don't even want to discuss what I paid for it.
On the back of the package there's all the info and tele. number of AMG in Europe. However, the word "fahrzeugteile" on the pack of the package is not spelled correctly. Strangely, the r is ommitted. I don't know if AMG would put out such a mistake both in spelling and quality.
