Default 14th/20th King's Hussars a/a collars

Gents
I would appreciate some help on an anodised collar badge!

What is the Prussian Eagle a/a collar? Obviously the same as the 14th white-metal version, but why a/a? An early a/a version worn by those from the 14th during and after amalgamation with the 20th perhaps?

Thanks in advance for any help.
Mark

The silver eagle badge was the 6th Gurkha arm badge.
Now worn as a pouch badge by the RGR I think.
The gold garter straps are the correct collars to the 14th/20th,worn as a facing pair.

Thank you Leigh and Mike. I would never have thought of that.
