Morning Colin,
The Firmin GMP badges should be in Gold Anodised with a slider. This was the sealed pattern. In the early days due to supply problems some locally cast badges were made in a coppery looking Brass.
Personally I am not happy with this badge, although both Firmin and Gaunt made metal versions of staybright badges for private purchase in various regimental PRI shops.

The white metal badges are fantasy, I've seen them advertised as NCO's etc. GMP were all NCO's like RMP. There are thousands of the WM badges around.
Officers badges are Silver or silver plate and marked as such. Detail is much finer as with RMP officers badges

Hope this helps
