I think model soldiers are an area with good interest- I should think most can be identified and priced by items sold on eBay. Regards, Paul.

Does look like Coldstream Guards, cap also looks worn in Guards style. Looks like an early 1905 SD cap but could be a 'trench' soft cap with a wire fitted to set it up smart. Regards, Paul.

Can someone give a timeline for HAC badges since 1900? Mainly interested as to when the badge as shown on a beret came into use. I have also seen it on gravestones. Regards, Paul.

They don't look much different to me. Hard to know where such items are made these days. Is the quality of one manufacturer/retailer thought to be higher than the other in general? Regards, Paul.
