A very informative thread, thanks to all. Any further comments on the metal crossed Sniders and Martinis I saw on Ebay?

The standard British issue were only ever Enfields, initially rifle muskets and then magazine fed long lees.

Thanks. If I find the Snider images on an old picture file I will post them on the Forum.

I was including Sniders in my referring to ‘Enfields’ as a conveniently generic descriptor. The early bullion badges were definitely 3-band Enfields, but I’m unsure if the early metal badges, distinguished by the depiction of slings (and shown in the post above) are Snider-Enfields, but I’m guessing that they probably are. The silhouettes are of course very similar when depicted in miniature form.

Default Enfield percussion crossed rifles

Here is the image from my old files, as I wrote earlier, I saw a similar badge that were definitely Sniders. I don't have the size listed but presume that it must be a collar badge.
