Default 9th Wellington East Coast Mounted Rifles

Picked this up today for my fledgling New Zealand collection. I believe it’s a wide banner version of the 9th Mounted Rifles cap badge but I’m quite thrown by the file marks on the slider. Anyone have any thoughts?

Hi,
I've never seen a badge of this type before and would think it is a modern fake.
Interested in other opinions.
John
I do note there is an anodised version around, with slider.

Difficult to see the dimple at the top of the slider, could you please post a side picture?
