Default Wiltshire with small void

I see that many say the small void between the cross and scroll is the sign of a repro. This is one with the void (in my collection) that I believe to be genuine. I welcome discussion.

The fake badges have a distinctive oval void. Yours appears to be mis stamped.

49lassiepen commented on a similar badge recently and stated he has been collecting to the Wiltshire Regiment for over 40 years I believe- and is against this version- which is also found with lugs/loops.
I don't have that experience centred to the regiment but personally feel its OK. I think of the void as being near rectangular.
Regards, Paul.
