This is an old flea market pick up, is there any chance this is original?  Any comments, observations and opinions would be appreciated.  The pin is about 3 1/4 inches (82.5mm) in length.

 

Thanks

It is a copy of an original. I don't think I have seen the Nationalists referred their army as the KMT army (國民黨軍)。 Only the CCP would do that. Plus, the writing is simplified which was never adapted by the ROC and they still use traditional text.

I thought it was a copy, but for the 3 bucks it cost me I was willing to risk it.  Thank you for the information.
