Default RAMC sweetheart

Hi all,

Random find from yesterday - a silver RAMC sweetheart- a soldiers head. Any idea of the period and how common it is? I really like the design, a reason why I picked it up.

Thanks,

Timo

Morning Timo.I spend many hours a week/internet/or out & about looking at military brooches.The design of your brooch is not common.IMO the brooch is WW1 period.The figure that still has his head is wearing a Broderick? so some on here might feel it is from a period prior to this.The retaining "C" clasp is perhaps a replacement?.Thank you for showing Gary

Hi,

The Registry Design Number 655759 would pitch it at 1916. This of course would be the earliest possible date of manufacture.
