Default Jennens & Co Rising sun

I have had one of these collar badges for years and never knew the maker until a friend recently showed me this marked example. Mine is oxidised not this high quality gilt.
Nice to know the maker at last. Jennens must have been a supplier for Australian officers in WW1.
I would be interested in a marked one if anyone has a spare, also a Firmin collar badge.
I have seen rising suns marked Firmin, Gaunt, Tiptaft, and Narborough, all with minor die differences. There are probably other UK makers as well.
