Default Leicesterhire Tiger, but which version please?

I've just acquired this Tiger as an original WWII, but my others have 'Hindoostan'.

The features of the casting, particularly the underbelly, look slightly different.

I'm wondering which version of the Tiger this is, assuming its an original WWII, and why they vary in detail slightly?

Presumably there were several different manufacturers of cap badges with their own slightly different dies?

Thanking you for feedback in advance!

It's a fake 1908-20 TF badge. The eyes are like an owls and found on the modern repros.
