Default Briggs stadium security badge thoughts?

Just curious about the collector opinions about the authenticity of this piece. I tried researching it and found nothing online. Is this real or a fabrication?

In my opinion it just looks too low quality to not be a fantasy piece. For a few reasons there are doubts.

The easy one should be answered by a photo of the back. All badges in south east Michigan are made by a local company called Weyhing. I have never seen a legit tiger badge not made by them and they have supplied most security, police and fire in the area for over a hundred years.

They also make a great product and that poor stamping tells me that this will not have a Weyhing mark.

Here is a photo of a weyhing Briggs police badge with the correct stamping
