Hi Nyles,

This looks like an original 2KEH cap badge, thanks for the nod Cam. Good crisp strike and crimped slider to the correct position and length. Just avoid looped ORs versions as a general rule and modern sliders.

Cheers Dean

I have dealt frequently with that Canadian seller. They have been good to deal with and quick shipping, but always a mixture of good and bad offerings, so one had best know what one is buying.

This brings up a question to mind. How can you tell a modern slider on a badge?

Thanks,

Terry

Iíve noticed the same with them - generally have more faith in their Canadian stuff but Iíve noticed a lot of suspect British badges.
