At first glance it's not obvious but I had read the news article and kept an eye out for any appearing for sale.

Think I need to change my glasses. Looked at the badge 3 times and not once did I spot the mistake....well, until you pointed it out!. How did they miss that one?
Cheers

I occasionally suffer from a lack of eye to brain coordination !

Recently saw a British Legion badge with a registered design number 984409 which would indicate 1978/1979.

Then I realised that the manufacturer had got the first number upside down and it should have been 684409 (1921-1922).


PS. The Uslster badge was originally sold in a shop in Newtonards (not sure if Poppy Shop) and was in a box with other RBL badges/pins.
