The badge images aren't clear enough to be sure, but to me it looks like somebody has taken the wreath and crown, removed the centre, and personalised it by adding the centre monogram. I...

Am I missing something here?

Hi All
I was watching this SG badge on e*** and was amazed to see the price it went for. Was it just a feeding frenzy or am I missing something?
