Hi Everyone,

These came with a recent lot of badges I purchased. I'm not a cloth badge collector but my initial opinion is not genuine. Looks like the backing may have been added over the stitching.

Any information appreciated

Hi
From what I can see they are a copy, full front view would be better to be 100%
Cheers steve

I certainly agree with your initial opinion.
