Default R Inniskilling Fus

A Friday afternoon badge or copy? No sweat hole. Soldier’s Friend residue in some recess.

Hi, I think the metal between the bottom of the flag and castle turret is a bad sign.
Cheers Tony.

Tony you are probably right but there are some pretty poorly struck period badges out there.

Is it metal or is it polish build up?

Metal I believe.

A genuine badge in my belief.

Some fakes do have this feature which is where I believe the advice/saying has come from. The badge above is from a different die and everything about it strikes me as correct and period.

Interesting, that being the case I wonder how many genuine examples have been dismissed as fake?
Apologies for my incorrect assumption re badge in original post.
Best I keep stumm.
