Sure - no. Suspicious of the colour of the back of the badge, the residual polish and colour of the braze (possibly re-attaches loops?) - yes.

Yes that’s right. Definitely not a 1916 all GM issue as I said in my OP since 1. it’s not on the official list from Julian’s research and 2. the person(s) who made it ended up doing twice as much...

Like your thinking Tim and bouncing ideas around is definitely the best way to stimulate discussion and ‘the little grey cells’ - as Poirot would say.

My advice would be to seek the type made by Woodward if you want an undoubtedly original badge. These come with both marked and unmarked sliders.

The gentleman doth protest too much. A ‘couple of crooks’ as you put it is exactly how I would describe them and their selling activities.

All brass KSLI badge

Some years ago I hesitated on the King’s Shropshire Light Infantry badge on the white background as I knew it didn’t exist on the 1916 all Gilding Metal issue list. The badge quickly sold and I...
