Yes, the seller had two, sold a day or two apart, the first went for closer to twice that price I think? I can't remember now

My mistake one badge sold on 27th December, the other 6th January, both for the same price.

Rather than strain eyesight to decipher the small V or VI, reigns can be distinguished by looking at tops of cyphers. Interlinked GR is GRV, separated GR is GRVI

Yep, though I always have to look at a badge or button to remind myself which is which.

Don't forget the 'wrong' cypher used initially by the RASC, and others I believe, due to the abdictation of Edward 8th, which consisted the GvR cypher but with VI instead of V in the middle.
