Default RA Busby grenades?

Please can anyone tell me if these are counterfeit or real?

I believe they match K&K 804 (Gilt officers') & K&K 826 (Vol WM OR).

They will be moved on but as yet I have no idea of a value due to their undetermined originality. Even if real I don't know what to value them at.

Thanks, Stephen.

Since posting there has been doubt over whether or not I have correctly attributed the gilt badge as an officers. I've included two additional photos where you can see the gilt on the front lapping around to end, showing the GM beneath. I still believe this is an officer's badge.
