Default New Zealand Engineers - GAUNT plaque

Asking on behalf of a colleague as not my area of collecting.

Grateful for comments on the authenticity of this New Zealand Engineers badge.

Cap and/or collar? Is the GAUNT plaque genuine?


Thanks

Tim

Gaunt plaque / plate is fine.

I’d be surprised if it’s not a genuine badge, it looks nice to me.
