Default Cast Artillery Badge

Hi.

I found this today at a local Car boot sale.

Is this just a copy or is it possibly an Indian cast version from WW2?

The slider has broken off; this looks to have originally been lead soldered in place.

Thanks.

Mike.

It is a copy,
BUT,
a contemporaneous copy, locally made, in theatre, in places such as India or Egypt and other areas. Typical of a such examples which date back to pre- WW1.

Thanks Simon.

I don't suppose there is anyway to age it, like the method in which the slider was attached??

I think the solder is a later addition to re affix the slider which broke off, so no.
