It’s the ‘eyebrow’ fake from the same die as the one in this thread https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...t=Lovat+Scouts

Image attached is a genuine badge.

Thanks for the confirmation Luke!

Do you have a picture of the back? I'm still chasing an authentic one.

That very badge is for sale on Cultman Collectables (no link to seller) for £20 https://www.cultmancollectables.com/...roduct_id=6448

They’re not rare and you can get one on eBay for £15-20 generally speaking.
