Realizing this is an old thread but it will save posting more pictures.

The 1948 cap badge variants (of which there were only 2 as far as I can find) were both made by and stamped Scully. And as far as I can see, there is no indication that the UK badge mills didn't pump out any fakes (as there was really no demand to copy this badge)

But I have a cap badge that is not Scully marked and seems to be "tri-metal" where the center is a bronze/copper coloring, as opposed to the shiny maple leaf. And it may be my bad eyes but the beaver and center shield look to be a finer definition than the Scully ones I have seen. It looks line the edge of the shield is more straight stamped than the beveled edge on others.

Could this be a prototype? Or just a production flaw?
