Both the top and bottom badges look fine, but not at all sure about the territorial one.

Shouldn't the Territorial on have a WM scroll overlay?

Yes, although, I don't like the look of your example, I am sorry to say.

The TF is probably a copy sorry as the economy issue sliders are distinctive. Doesn’t have the usual die flaws of the 1970s copies so don’t throw it away just yet. https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ictureid=36710

Cheers Dean

Repro I’m afraid. From the same die as this one with a nasty angular England-style slider typical of the 1970s repros. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4th-5th-6...a16c%7Ciid%3A1

I have never seen a Leics TF 1916 all GM that I would consider genuine.
