Default Leinster Cap Badge

Hi Guys,

How are you? I did a forum search on this badge and looked at a lot of these badges in various threads. From it is clear that this badge is massively faked. Although it is quite possible I overlooked my badge (see pics please), there are after all nine pages of hits on the search term Leinster, I did not encounter a badge that I thought was a good match for my badge. For that reason I would very much welcome some second opinions on this badge. Thank you.

Cheers, Tom

Nice original badge,
Metal type and detail look good and note on the back traces of genuine age!
Kind regards Chay

A totally off subject question please. As a Yank can you tell me phonetically how you pronounce the name on this badge please?

Thanks,

Terry

Again, from the photographs, I too would think original.
