That crown looks lopsided to me, would that have passed quality control?
Or is it my squint eyesight

Thanks Alan, thought it was worth a punt, Alex it is a little lopsided, however I've seen much worse RE examples.
Cheers Tony.

Rubbish quality, unlike the one on the right Alan has shown. IMHO

Andy thanks for your opinion, but without seeing the back of a badge how can you compare the quality?
Cheers Tony.

I can't, but the front of Alan's is far superior.

To me the lettering on " Honi " looks bad.aswell as the crown. The lettering on Alan's is good. IMHO

Have to agree with Andy on that one, the letters 'HO' are totally out of line with the 'NI'.
Cheers,
Alex
