To me they look like modern repro titles and just come off the press but I am no expert.

I do not think the Australians used printed badges.

Hi BC,

I wouldn't be so quick to write it off as I believe Australia did use printed titles, in the 50's, but am unsure if there was an SASR issue.

There are a number of experienced Aussie collectors here so hopefully they will be able to provide a definite answer.
