It’s from the same die as yours Rob. Certainly not ‘totally different’.

The wheel hub shape is due to the voiding, which is different. But the thrust of this thread was to highlight the...

Every slidered example from this die is found with a modern shaped slider. In this case which has been replaced.

Appears to be the trio recently sold on Minden. If it’s them, then, yes they are all genuine.

The same cannot be said for the shocking Para fake with a brass backing plate.

Thanks again Alan. This photo was on the page so seems they did switch to MGC insignia upon the merger and getting back to Europe sometime presumably after April 1918.
