Default Middlesex and Huron Regiment Piper's, Glengarry cap badge?

Picked up this beautiful badge last week and I wish to share it the forum. It's listed in Chris Brooker's badges volume 3. Never seen one before and I picked it up for a great price. Asking if any one has any thoughts or knowledge of this badge?

Contrary to what Brooker says, this is piece of costume jewelry. Shortly after the Second WW, a couple of American companies acquired surplus badges or the dies and used them to make jewelry. It is one of several such pieces. Some are marked Agnew.
