Another example to note with a white-metal hairpin style slider, and with the addition of a tooled hole at the tip-end; this trait can be found on some brass sliders too.

Here's an interesting *explanation to such an anomaly: apparently, this hole is the consequence of a manufacturers error, as the firms producing the badges were told to replicate the badge exactly per the badge on the sealed pattern card. The hole in the pattern card example was to enable the attachment of the said badge to the card by means of a short length of string and a wax seal. This resulted at a later stage in an amending instruction not to produce the badges with holes in the vertical shank (slider).

* I have only read one transcript version of the 1929 sealed pattern card for this badge and as of yet I am unable to make any determination on the "explanation."
