Default Bullion O wing

A friend who owns this is wondering what he has and is hoping for some feedback. It's a nice example of bullion work, but to my eye unusual padding and I've never seen another example with the nitch cut-out like this. I'd guess British style but perhaps there's some wing-nuts out there who could comment or date, originality, etc. One-off or limited production in any event I would say.

No history other than it came from a collector in Britain. Thanks in advance for your input.

It is a very new item.

Too new to have been worn in the UK.

Whether it is still worn in other countries I dont know.

Sorry Wayne. Just saw this post. This badge is awful. If you want a modern fake than it’s a beauty.
