It purports to be an OSD, but the quality is poor and it should normally have blades. There were no collar badges for the Household Cavalry. Strange things occur during war time however.

yes, it definitely struck me as weird. But for $2 it wasn’t much of a risk.

That does not appear to have any age to it whatsoever and is a peculiar colour, as well as being very crudely cast.
