Sorry I didn't get back to you via the feedback you sent (I was about to deal with unanswered feedback after browsing the forums.)
The shield (or gray blob, as many saw it) was removed due to the confusion being caused by the number of abstract icons next to users names.
But, don't worry too much. Some text has been added to the profile page explaining that you were an original pawn-star. This will be made more prominent when the profile page gets a rewrite (pretty much next in the queue to be done).
