Default Badge Experts and Identification Scots Guards

I would first like to thank for their help in this matter, Gerard McEwan ( Scottish Police Medals ) and Forum member Fwhittle.
I have always known that the badge shown, was not Scots Guards ! This badge had been identified 3 fold.
A Scots Guards badge.
A Sgt's badge.
And a FSH pagri badge.
The badge has been sold by Regimentals for 250 ! And by C & T Auctions for 220 ! And of course identified incorrectly. I have emailed these two, and had one reply. The reply was from C & T Auctions, telling me their badge expert was Geoff Newman. I have emailed Geoff to ask how and why he came to the decision what this badge was and who it was too. Ive had no reply. He could be away somewhere, and of course got this info from someone else.
I have been searching for years to find out about this badge/badges, as there is a flattop crown version ( Victorian ) that has been sold too at a ridiculous price. Forum member Fwittle told me it could be a Prison Service badge. So the search went on. I needed hard evidence, so again the search went on. I emailed a Police Medal collector/researcher who, sent me this. Shown below. The page is from a book " Badges of Office ", the badge is bottom right.
So we now Know that this badge has nothing to do with the Scots Guards whatsoever, let alone a Sgt's badge or a pagri badge.
Thanks
Andy

I agree its not Scots Guards, but the Police Badge would be in WM or Chrome.

Its probably some similar Municipal Organisation.

Altcar will tell us.

I had one of these once, on a slider. I accidentally snapped the crown and slider off (I was just a kid). It got thrown in the bin but I have wondered ever since what it was.

I believe that the prison service did have brass badges.

I just wonder who has these in their Scots Guards collections ????? That have probably spent on them. It just amazes me how someone can identify something so wrongly, the whole point of this post I suppose is to out ignorance.....
