Default 72nd Regiment of Foot (Duke of Albany's Own Highlanders)

Good afternoon gentlemen,

Opinion required on this badge, (SVP). It has been in my collection for many years, and I have often wondered about it. The size of the badge is 80mm High x 54mm Wide and weighs 37g. It appears to have traces of guilt on the reverse. The loops have feet, and are toned.

Kind Regards,

Michael Griffiths

Thank you Luke H and Manchesters for the very fast response re this badge.
It was acquired many years ago (Pre Internet) for a modest sum at the time.
I have been suspicious about this badge, and now it has been confirmed as a reproduction.
Regards,
Michael Griffiths
