Default WW1 CEF collar badge & a mystery badge

Hello everyone,

I am attaching photos fronts and backs of two badges that I would like to know more about.

The first is a collar badge I found buried in the corner of one of my boxes. It is the 7-50, 50th Gordon Highlanders Overseas Infantry Draft collar badge WW1 CEF in blackened copper. It should have two stamped lugs on the reverse but they appear to be missing. Does anyone know anything about the rarity of this collar badge.? I can find very little reference to these badges.

The second badge has an unusual pin fastening and I have no idea about its identity. Any help would be much appreciated.

Bill, the Gordon Highlanders draft collar is rare.
