Default 150th Batt CEF

I noticed this cap badge of the 150th Batt CEF Carabiners Mont Royal is different than my others. Note the ends of the rifles do not protrude past the maple leaf.

Looks like they've broken off to me from the picture.

Look at the back, the mold lines don't show any break

It is a broken badge, nothing else. Sorry, but sometimes the simplest explanation is the correct one.

Its not broken, the mold goes all the way around the edge, if the rifle end was broken off it would show where it was broken off. Other badges I have show the rifle end coming out of the tip of the maple leaf and the mold lines showing that.
