    Hi James, seems to look OK in the pics but one needs to be very cautious with these and all 2nd Corps collar and beret badges as the market crawls with fakes.

    If you have this badge in your possession, and also have a known genuine Lorioli made badge with the same style spinner try interchanging the spinners. Also, put the spinners up against each other. The known fakes are smaller Ė with the fake slipping inside the genuine spinner if pressed together back to back - and donít spin freely onto genuine badge posts.

    Regards,
    Tony

    it looks quite good. 10 to 1 the spinners will spin freely and correctly.
