I’d say they are both Replicas and probably from the same Company,the Cheap one would do me as I’m sure TRGB would use these themselves.

If the expensive one lasts 30 year and the cheap one lasts only ten years then get the cheap one.

 

It works out the same price but you get a new badge every ten years.

The Moss item is definitely a repro - you can tell from

the diameter of the fixing pin.

 

Hard to believe the other option is anything but a repro

but at least at a sensible price.

 

There was a problem some years back with the repro

items having a slightly different curvature to the bonnet.

Maybe new stock repros have sorted this out.

 

What price, I wonder, for a NOS Stanpart item?

Or, for that matter, re-enamelling, though the exact correct

colour may be difficult to guarantee. Anyone experience

of this?

 

(Edit: That eBay item is a repro - again, you can tell from

the pin diameter (original was a smaller diameter).
