Default Variant King's Own Calgary Regiment Officers' Badge

Hi all, I picked up a nice variation on the officers' King's Own Calgary Regiment (Calgary Tanks) badge. The badge on the right is the common variant. On the left is what I believe is an earlier version. It's my belief that on the accession of Elizabeth, the kings crown die was used but the new Elizabethan crown replaced the kings crown. Later a whole new die with the ERII crown was manufactured. This would also mean that there is a earlier version of the post-war, pre 1952 officers Calgary Regiment badge out there. If anyone has such a badge and wants to part with it, please PM me!
