Default Rising Sun Collar badges with Anzac 'A'

Here's an interesting unofficial pair of Rising Sun Collar badges with Anzac 'A'.

Has anyone come across badges like this before? Or perhaps a one off made for a soldier?

Enjoy!

Hi Mick,
A long time in between posts, hope all is well. I have not come across any similar badges, my guess would be a private purchase. A very nice set by the way.

Cheers Nick

Thanks mate - it's been busy times for me in recent months.

I think some digger probably went to a jeweler and had these made. I wonder of a hat badge version exists?

I have seen a couple of dozen collar badges like these with letters and numbers, no one knows what they are. Probably made up at random by a jeweller, can't imagine they could be official. Will see if I can find some pix.
