If in an LDO box, it should be marked L/55 IMO.
Probably put together at a later date.

Nice badge, but it's also in the wrong type case. Gold Wound Badges came in a black hinged case almost exactly like that of an EK1, and Silver ones in the above maroon type you show, although I do believe on occasion that they were awarded in the black case for GWB's but never the other way around. Perhaps others can comment on this?
Regarding the finish on the OP's black badge, it appears to me to be typical for that maker in it's almost 'paint like' appearance.
