Default Newfoundland Officer's Badge?

Can anyone comment on this? It is a nice striking but looks very similar to any of the O/R Newfoundland badges I have seen? I'm having trouble seeing how it is any finer detail than the two O/R's I have. With OSD badges I thought the quality was markedly different - it certainly is with British OSD badges and I don't see why the Newfoundlanders would be any different!

Cheers, Ian.

Similar thoughts Ian. I thought that the osd badges were solid backed.

Asking for a friend on another forum, but is this correct?

It looks very convincing and probably an OSD, but such are not within my area of knowledge. I did a search and could not find anything that matched, either good or bad.

thanks.

Hi jerry
That looks like the badge recently sold on eBay for£45.
I believe there are modern fakes of Newfoundland badges doing the rounds on eBay. The sellers other CEF badge were modern fakes although claimed to be genuine. Also I have seen Newfoundland badges in auction houses recently listed along side obvious other fakes that make them all questionable. I.e. lockdales etc.
Be very wary of any Newfoundland badges on eBay now.
Kindest regards
Dan

Dan, I'll have to ask the buyer if he recently got it from ebay. I know it must have been recent as I think these are the sellers pics.
