Default Gordon Highlanders and Grenadier Guards Opinions Please

Opinions please on these two badges.

My concerns are as follows:-

Gordon Highlanders has been struck using a broken die as is shown in picture 2 resulting in a blank scroll end. Is this a known defect on good badges?

Grenadier Guards has a lightweight tapered slider. Is this correct. Got to say it looks better in the picture than it looks in hand.

Thoughts please

Eric

I have the same badge. As far as I'm concerned, a good one, until any contrary evidence comes to light. One from the gallery; (I'm sure there's others). https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/fo...ctureid=107394 Mike
