Dear all,
There is a seller 80wolfhall5 on ebay which has a large amount of rare Glengarry badges and other Victorian pieces which I believe are very doubtful.
Please advise and thanks,

I am not so sure it is a fake. The detail and quality is excellent except for the unvoided error on the wreath, which I have seen on other old and genuine Cameron badges, but I think the silver...
