Default A couple of questions

Picked up these yesterday.
A Gordon's badge, appears to be a good one, but plated? The G M is showing through on the high points. Is this correct? The badge has old lugs, a couple of loose fittings that held the tartan backing?
Secondly another Worcs Yeo. I assume this is a copy but looks good to the beginners eye (me).
Bought in Worcestershire so you never know!

Hmm. I am unaware of any OR Gordon badges that were plated GM, but the badge looks OK.
I don't think the Worcester Hussars looks good.
