Notice the green material behind the Agents Wing.

This is the first time that I have encountered an 8240th AU badge with backing material and at this time, I do not know the significance behind it. Another unusual - unique aspect about this original badge is the fasteners on the back.

This particular Agents Wing has a screw back post in the middle and clutch back posts on either side of the wing.
