Default 35th Sikhs Officer Cap Badge

I have discovered a 35th Sikhs officer peaked cap with badge, which is a simple voided disc with XXXV above & SIKHS below, no crown.
Should this badge include a crown, or is it OK as is?
Thanks in advance.

The first badge shown is a match, and a rather unattractive one IMHO.
Thanks much.
