sounds more and more like a copy or plaque badge and not an official badge

I see what the alternative can be now.
I have no idea what this company utilises for displaying badges on plaques, whether original insignia or custom made artefacts. Possibly the method of attachment to these wooden plaques would furnish an answer?

The 1948-53 badges were short-lived. Are they all scarce?

Thanks for all the sharing of knowledge.

Another query: What would be the distinction between brass and bronze titles, and between straight and curved?
Is there a time-frame for each individual title?
