I bought this badge this morning and have taken pics before cleaning and after, I am very suspicious of this badge as it being an original and did not pay a fortune for it.

I have never seen one of these before which is why I bought it, I would welcome thoughts as to this badge being original or not.

Many thanks Rob

Hi Rob

I will leave it to the experts on originality (it would be a super grab if it is) But I can add from Cossum's book it's listed as a cast unofficial WW1 collar badge, (RS39) circa 32mm high.

Cheers, Tim

G'day Rob

Firstly thanks for sharing as these are a rare item whether they are good or not.

Personally I don't like the shape and proportions of the badge as compared with a normal rising sun. I know that they were made in the field so proportions may not be important.

I will state here that I am NO expert on these badges.

I know that they have been discussed previously on the forum and there was talk of them being a 2 piece badge, ie the camel being made separately. However I don't have one to compare it with.

May be do a search for previous threads on Camel Corps or scroll back down these threads and see how you go.

Good luck

Phil.

Phil, thanks for the reply, yes, I'm afraid this has to be consigned to the spare lugs/loops box, it's complete rubbish, the more I look, the cr*p it looks, the guy I bought it from had some superb WW1 German items for sale.

Rob

I was literally seconds away from posting this one under the title of "is this as fake as I think it is"?

I'm pretty sure it has come from the same die, and I have two of them. One with three lugs and one with two.

For the record they are both 45mm high by 60mm across
