Default opinion on this non voided Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders

Hello,
May I ask your opinion about this non voided Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders cap badge.
This badge was purchased in 1997 from a badge dealer in Derby.
Thank you.

The Pattern 7181/1910 of 1910 (and later) was voided

Thanks for your input.
What about the badge strike ? I have doubts about its authenticity...

The original Victorian badges had the cat's tail raised.

There were a further 2 sealed patterns until the fourth one which has the tail down and the pierced front.

There were a further 2 versions: WW2 plastic and the a/a.

Interesting - can fat cats, thin cats, cats facing their front, facing their left, the bare stemmed crossed thistles at base of badge, overlapping leaf at base of badge also be dated?

Looks like it has footed lugs so that would raise question marks for me.
Cheers,
Alex

I would like to thanks everyone for your input and details. You have understood that I am not a big fan of this cap badge, hence my question...
All the best

Thank you Luke ! According to the die flaw on the first L of ARGYLL, it's seems to be a reproduction....
All the best.
