My pair of the smaller QVC badges have slight die variations on the bugle decoration. We can certainly give them the benefit of the doubt as British collar badges worn in pre-fed Victoria, and MAYBE they wore them in pairs rather than just facing right as Grebert shows them.
Do you know if Rick Grebert is still alive? I heard years ago that he had cancer.
In regard to the large bugle badge in the centre, I can't guarantee that they were definitely worn in NSW and I don't know why Jeff Cossum thought so. As you know, a large number of bugle badge variations were worn by Rifle Vols right around the empire and we don't have much documentation to be sure who wore what.
