Blackened 7th Hants

Recently picked up this badge and I think it is a good one, but am perplexed as to why it is blackened as it is normally GM. I am of course aware that many TA and Yeomanry regiments did sport bronze/black badges at times.

Very yellow brass painted black suggests fake to me. Sorry.

Thanks Alan. It does have rather yellowish brass to the high points, but otherwise does not seem to be a fake. Perhaps the blackening is to cover up a multitude of evils however....
