It's annoying I don't have one to compare. I would need to have it in the hand to give it the thumbs up. My advice is to keep it as genuine until contrary evidence appears.

To confirm, middle row left is 50mm x 32mm (KK 1388). This one does have a Gaunt Montreal plate at the rear of the crown. I suppose I assumed that it was cheaper to have them made in Canada but never...

Alex,

The common way to tell the wheat from the chaff is to look at the sheaf knot. Compare the knot from Luke's to yours.

Unusual construction but I like it. There is enough about it to make me feel comfortable with it.

Steve718,

The maid's hair should not come into contact with the wing. The exception to this is the later badge (WW2) which is a smaller version.

Roy,

I don't post much these days but feel strongly enough to reply that I am not a fan of this. It does not look like an item of quality to me as it should be.

Hi Stephen,

I can understand why you have thought that. However, I have zoomed in to a part of the scroll that may change your mind.

GTB,

I would attribute MIY to Middlesex IY rather than Montgomeryshire IY based on the thickness of the lettering.

Rob,

All the signs of a fake, sorry.

Veins not prominent, stalk should be smooth not ribbed, although I cannot tell 100% from the angle of the photos the edges of the badge should be thick....
