Cool Flat topped shield Cambridgeshires

I often find that some badges are guilty by association, if a seller who has known fake badges for sale and I see any of these being offered it puts my guard up straight away.

Of course when it comes to "T" titles there are all sorts of variations, large and small "T"'s as well as the lower title which can also vary.
