It is a genuine badge. I’ve seen this type referred to as the ‘wonky’ or ‘ugly’ crown variant. Not a common variant in comparison to Gaunt die badges etc.

The looped badge you showed in post #1 is straight out of the Martin Marsh fake catalogue Ian. They come with loops, sliders, voided and un-voided (crowns & 6 o’clock).

I should think a dealer would certainly charge around £65-75, if not more for that type.

The BM type Remounts is far more common and much more reasonably priced.

Alas it is fake also. Had it been genuine it would’ve been snapped up off eBay in a heartbeat as the £39.99 buy it now price would be a bargain.
