It is unusually nice for Ludlow. I have a few officer badges by this maker and they are not quite up to Jennens or Gaunt with regard to overall detail and quality.

Officers S/P gilt & WM glengarry badge.
This example by the same maker though not marked.
A cheaper version of the above, with open backed S/P star and plated lugs.
The same fine gilt overlay but mounted with a WM St. Andrew.

Officers S/P and gilt glengarry badge.
Fine quality badge with burnished highlights to the gilt. Die-struck star with a pronounced curve, although not marked I believe this to be Gaunt manufacture around 1950.
