The fact that he doesn't show the back of the badge is a sign for me that I want to look elsewhere.

CAVEAT EMPTOR and always read the small print:

"Originality guarantee: If we do not state that the item is an original issue in my description then you must assume that it is not. Please ask me before bidding if you require clarification".

It's reported that he was away from ebay because he was inside following a court case.

Thanks Simon

Also have a look at the 2 X 24th Lancers "Original" cap badges one in white metal with the little extra bits at the bottom on the lances and another in what looks like a gold coloured metal, both are dodgy.

Keep up the good work guys.

One of the good reasons to be a member of the forum, there are some nasty bits there manufactured to separate you from your hard earned, please be aware. Regards Mark

There a court report in a West Midland newspaper last year. I don't have a copy I am afraid.

They both seem to have been taken down when I just looked, and there is currently nothing at all in “seller’s other items”. Either he reads this or Ebay got onto him. Or there’s a new user name on the way.
