Ma perché, si consuma? Il mio è ancora intatto, sembra nuovo, a differenza della scritta "ZX Spectrum +" che invece si era un po' scolorita. L'ho ridipinta ma purtroppo il colore è un po' diverso dall'originale. :-(

The original enamel badges seem to fade on some machines over the years and would have been much too expensive to reproduce in enamel. The enamel also gets scratched and I have seen a couple of machines with almost silver badges (all the colour has worn away)!

Oddly the replacements were based on a couple of sample badges I had from Spectrum+ machines (and are actually closer to the colours which appear on the original box), but it appears that the majority of machines have a lighter colour scheme - we are talking with the factory about getting another run of badges done in the alternative (lighter) colour scheme
