But in this case that you’ve not seen another I don’t think counts as a positive, it is a strange thought that some fakes are rare but in the case of Allen that is certainly true - at least regards cap badge.

Also I’ve never seen a genuine British Army cap badge with their mark either.
I found some Police badges with this mark for sale online, but that does not prove anything, as they might be fakes also.

As I already said, I could not find a single image of this maker on a genuine badge, -except possibly the police badges I just mentioned-, but not anything 100% so sadly it seems to be a bad un.
