Unfortunately both appear bad in my opinion. The color of the metal and the sliders are typical of many fakes.

Yeomanry badges were the earliest fakes as they are the rarest.

Being single metal it's hard to be definitive. Both are wells truck so if they are fakes then the are very good ones. I would not discard them.

We are you buying these from, I wonder, if sold as original, I would seek a refund if I were you.

I tend to agree. I would certainly not be hasty about getting rid of the Lothian and Border Horse badge.

Thank you for your comments guys. Here are two more that I have dug out. One with the gaunt b,ham which is probably a restrike, and the other which is horrible slightly bigger and gilded. What are the opinions of these two ?

The Gaunt Bham is certainly a 1970's copy.
