Billy,

I am not expert in London Regt Badges but the voided centre seems like a good indicator of authenticity. Copies I have seen and owned are non voided. No doubt Luke H or others more knowledgeable will provide a more definitive answer.

Many thanks.
Think I see where you’re going JT . The crown voids too have potential.
Cheers,

No it’s genuine. The slider shape, strong crimp line and crown voids are reminiscent of a badge produced by the manufacturer F.E. Woodward.

Spot on, Luke. Thatís exactly where I was going. Iíd say that is a very strong candidate for being a Woodward badge.

Completely agree JT. Certainly a type worth keeping an eye out for to see if one surfaces with a marked slider.
