Default Beware CCF unit “names” badges. !!!!!

A collector ,for what I believe are perfectly innocent reasons, has commissioned some embroidered cloth badges which just comprise the name of CCF units . The problem may arise if the manufacturer produced a run of these badges some of which which may end up on the open market and collectors may think they have come across a previously unknown badge to that unit.

As always caveat emptor.

P.B.

Peter
Can you clarify please, is it just on unit or multiple items?
Can you give an example?
