Thank Luke. I think my badge in post 4 of the old thread may be 'related' to Andy P's 1st badge, perhaps the 'hatching' was a detail only visible on earlier examples of that variation? I'll pick your brains on the 3rd patt. sometime. Cheers, Paul.

How are you? I would very much welcome some second opinions on those 11 badges that have not had any opinions expressed on them. Thanks!

I personally don't like that Cameron type, I cant say its wrong, I just like versions with better feet- for me he fails foot inspection. Seaforth good 3 lug WWI type-missing a lug? The Kings Liverpool Scottish looks a nice example-2 parts placed well together. Regards, Paul.

Thank you Paul. I will err on the side of caution with the Cameron and return that one. Should not be hard to find an example that is less controversial.

Seaforth is indeed missing a lug but cheap.

Liverpool Scottish is indeed a beautiful badge and thanks for confirming that because I really want to keep all those that are good and hope that I do need to send back any good badges just because these did not get a 2nd opinion.

Much appreciated!

Whilst the Seaforth is certainly missing a lug, I suspect it is a little older than it might appear.
