Luke Jedi Snap Cape - Dark stud

Hi, picked up a luke Jedi with a snap cape but not sure about it. The stud is a darker colour and not shiny like all I have seen and another I have had for around 20 years. Has anyone else seen anything similar or is likely to be fake as in the stud added? The stitching and cotton all looks legit and know they were produced in several factories.
Any help/guidance appreciated.
Don't post frequently on here and have been a lurker for years, but the lockdown has rekindled my vintage figure collection with figure variants. I also use TIG and other reference guides for help.

Mate on FB who has an extensive Luke Jedi focus says this is a genuine example of a Smile factory Luke Jedi snap cape.

Hi, thanks for the reply and conformation. It's great to hear that it's original. Another variant for the collection. The seller did say it was from an original child hood collection but you always have doubts.
Just got to find a moulded face Taiwan variant now.
Thanks again
