Default A makers name I've not seen before?

Not a badge I'm buying, but the makers name caught my eye, couldn't see it on the 'makers marks' sub gallery, unless my eyes have deceived me!
Is this a fake one?
Cheers
Chris

I’ve seen the maker’s mark on a WW1 Ulster Volunteer Force UVF / 36th Ulster Division cap badge as per the photo below (unfortunately, it’s not my badge but the photo is in the public domain).

There do seem to be some minor differences between them, though.

Fairly recently I saw a UVF badge with that mark on the back, the badge appeared brand new and was being offered at a fraction of the value of an original and I wondered if that makers mark was being used on repros.

The RIF badge it's on looks iffy.
They must be trying to make it more attractive.
Thanks for the replies.

Never seen this maker’s mark on anything other than the Dixie “Oval badge with right hand palm facing you”

Hi

I think I have this maker on a silver association/ war service badge of some sort.

OK, not terribly helpful as I can't recall what type of badge it is but give the brain time to work and I'll remember!
