Re: Combadges from a prop perspective - placement and positioning

Another thing about the comm badges...

In-universe, they were gold metallic, shiny.
The real production props weren't metallic and had a dulled finish. This was to prevent set lighting glare and lens flare on camera.

So anyone wanting a comm badge would have to chose between real-life authentic prop quality (dull flat finish) versus in-universe depiction (gold metal look, shiny).
