The badges in the image Clive posted sure look like they are gilt.

Default SIB cap badge

They do look gilt, maybe it was identified as officers based on the backing? I don't collect officers badges but either way it's the only one I have seen for sale.

Have you had the badge off of the backing to see if there is a maker mark?

Default backing

I have not bent the tangs back to inspect the back, but from pulling the backing back it looks to be unmarked, and appears to be cast
