I've not seen one marked 'STERLING' before, but that worries...

Hi All,

I'm looking for opinions on whether or not this is a genuine badge. I do have a view, but welcome others' thoughts.

Hi Leigh,

The size is actually spot on for a forage cap badge, but from everything else it looks like a blazer badge to me.
