Hello Gents,

From what I can see from the picture, they are original to the badge and not an alteration. Those are often referred to as "Ellis lugs" because they are flat metal lugs with the hole punched out. Looking at the style at the base of the lug remnants along with placement on the badge, I am confident they are original. These are seldom encountered but do exist. The only thing I am perplexed with is why they were cut off???? Might you be able to post another angled shot of the lugs, please?

Cheers
