Default 18th Hussars

Any thoughts on these two 18th Hussars badges?

Thanks for looking and apologies for them being sideways!

The looped one is fake.

Could you post clearer images of the die cast badge please. It’s very out of focus.

They had several cap badge designs between 1901-10 so I doubt that many were made so they are scarce designs. It has encouraged a lot of fakery to fill the demand. Missing from my collection is the 1902 K/C version of the QVC version shown on the left.
