1908-09 BMY  Note how the brass backing disc is crimped to the badge.  It is also the first badge that could be slipped OVER the S-wires having a notch for each wire on the back of the badge.  Prior to the BMY badges the S-wires were placed into holes in the side of the badge.

I don't have a 1906-07 pancake to take photos of but did find a photo at the bottom of my photos.  They did use a brass disc but it was crimped into place by squeezing at four spots around the back of the badge.  The badge did not have the crimping fingers all around it.
