Hi,

imo a nice worn original but with a replaced catch.

Regards
Mike

I agree with Mike. I’d go further and say this one probably dates from 1915-1916 based on marking location and stamp characteristics. The amount of honest service wear further supports a badge worn for several years as does the replaced catch. This one has seen the elephant.
