British Columbia Dragons "Sully"

Sully instead of Scully: a mistake or a fake? Thank you very much for your opinion. Oriano

Also "Dragoons" not Dragons.

Badge good or bad, no idea.

The Scully error mark certainly raises questions. There is no record of that mark.

I've had one of these in my collection for 25+ years now and have always thought of it as genuine, despite the 'Sully' error mark. A heavy, well stamped badge in a high copper content brass (very red/brown).

I never questioned the error in the maker's mark as there is absolutely no consistency to how any Scully badges are marked.

Many thanks for your reply. Oriano

Bill, could you post an image of the marking on your badge please?

Hi Bill, I'll see if I can find a photo of the back on my HD, otherwise I would have to dismount the badge from the frame it is in... however, from what I recall, it is identical in marking to the badge that started this thread.
