I have one that is all gold at least it appears to be gold with the marks on the back. How much are they worth ?

I have an identical cap badge which was my father's. He was
a piper in the HLI band and I have several other mementos of
his. His chanter and a photo of the band taken as part of the
BAOR in 1919. He was born in April 1900 and luckily missed the worst of the fighting.~ Many thanks for your comment. Administrator.
