Die-struck ORs pattern badge which has been silver plated the face with frosted finish then highlights burnished to a mirror shine. The reverse with heavy tarnish, two fairly heavy long lugs. No signs of it ever being worn perhaps a presentation piece for display?

OR's glengarry badge die-struck in bronze. I cant explain why, perhaps used in Korea or Kenya? It does have service wear and some rubbing.
