M5 badge, Which one is right?

Hello Forum-

I sold my e36 M3 and bought an e39 M5 (need the 4 doors). My M5 badge is a little faded and my birthday is today and I got two badges as gifts. One from Pelican Parts and the other from an ebay store. Both say they are "original OEM BMW". Guess what? They are both different. One is rounded with a more subdued color scheme. The other is more square with brighter colors. Does anyone know which one is correct? I posted pics to help out.
