At present I only have a photo of the shoulder title, but looking at the image I have I can't see any makers mark.

Measurements

Looking at my meagre collection of NZ badges, the larger of the 2 NZE badges (Cox 2927) is 47mm x 29mm, whilst the smaller one (Cox 2923) is 39mm x 23mm.

I hope that helps?

:)
