Default Cyclist badges

Morning all, would welcome opinions on these two please.

Apologies for the orientation, it just doesn’t work right with the iPad?

Thanks Ian

I like the look of the right one as viewed- with slider. Still on my wants list though so just an opinion-I've no experience with the badge. Regards, Paul.

Interesting question, but it seems that there are no other opinions ... ?
I have very small experience, but i also like the one with long slider (tapered ?) and the visible crimp mark.
The one with lugs ... the patina looks a little bit artificial on the pictures and the lugs have a light reddish colour ... i would have doubts but like I said, just a gut feeling. There is also a small die flaw between the Crown and the tire.

I have non of the batallions badges, but two for the Cyclist Corps. They were worn (so far i know) from 1914-1920 and are not so rare, but for sure heavy faked.
Are they genuine from the period ? I have a good felling with right one with the long, tapered slider. Also found badges made from this die in the albums.
May be someone can give a further expertise on our badges, that would be very helpfull.

Kind regards
Markus

Thanks for the comments Markus, I was always informed that the voided section above the scroll was the best way of defining fakes and I don’t see anything wrong with either of yours. however others may disagree.

I have these two badges and the lugged one feels superb quality that it’s hard to believe it is a fake. It actually feels like an Officers bronze badge. Open to any opinions?
