WWI, a common form of card with some, such as this being more "desirable" than others because of the unit.

yes, very thin metal and a toning on the reverse that I don't like, a hint of purple to it. I hadn't had a proper look at it until now and so had'nt noticed the feet on the lugs although I was aware...

The Life Guards (1st & 2nd).

I've always been suspicious of this little badge in my collection.

That's it, the one with the flicked up tail (code 64550), looks like it's the same die as the one I showed.
And now I've seen it the half a tail one too (code 55376), looks like the same die again.
