Dave this is just a taste of your fine "collection"
I look forward to see more, especially your recent tank badge purchase as it is truly a unique badge.

Thanks Wayne - interesting to compare HP photos - apart from the obvious there are also subtle differences.

Thanks for the encouragement Brent. I used to think I knew quite a bit but having met you, others and forums like this realie both how little I know and the synergistic value of sharing knowledge.

To that end two questions re this 4th Battalion Otago Territorials Rifles badge I acquired a while ago:
1) Does it strictly "go" with the "Rifle Volunteers" or is it a different era?
2) How would I safely clean it to look more like one recently on Trademe that looks outstanding?

IMO it is a transitional badge that was most likely made in 1910.
As such it would fit in as a 4th Battalion Otago Rifle "Volunteers" badge, or you could display it as a "Territorial" badge of the 14th Regiment South Otago Rifles.

In regards to cleaning I would suggest giving it to Rodger he has the skills to make it look perfect, or you could try Ceraclen Silver Dip which also works brilliantly on brass and copper.
