So until the College of Arms started granting them circa 1900, there were no proper heraldic badges? ;)

"Proper" as having been designed and approved by an heraldic authority, as against a design cobbled together by a "design consultant" or perhaps by someone in the Public Works Department.

No reason why not, except perhaps that heraldic badges are not usually exact clones of the principal charge on a CoA.
