Question Regiment President Steyn Hat Badge

Good day

I'm guessing that this isn't the real thing but the detail does seem to be good. Although strong the metal feels thin.

What do you think?

Many thanks

I build cards for the badges I have in the collection and this may be of use. The cards have been uploaded in a single album some time back. If you search the words South Africa they will come up. Hope this helps.

Hi, this badge looks fine to me. All the restikes I have seen of this badge have a slider on the back. The original never had a slider, to the best of my knowledge. Regards Andrew
