I agree too. Have also noticed a lot more ‘cut and shuts’ on dealers sites where badges have had fittings professionally replaced and they’re not always described as such.

The hallmarked silver arm badge first edition is Bent & Parker. The second edition arm badge was brought from Dead Spartan and looks and feels right to me.

I agree with you all on the bottom right one as I was convinced this was a fake, not sure on bottom left and this was also brought from Dead Spartan.

There are 3 lug badges with one underline as well as 2 lugged ones north and south, they seem to be both good, but know not sure 😊 there is a mixture of single and double underlined number with both 2 & 3 lugs, which seems strange.

Collectors - My question (on the above) is this.....

Which is the later (most recent) design of the 7DG badge. The one with the Regt's title or the one with the motto ?

Thanks.
