42nd Officers Victorian glengarry badge.
Unmarked silver back star mounted with a fire gilt overlay (sun bleached). Conjoined silver numerals mounted to the centre. Pleasing blue tarnish to the silver.

Another excellent piece. I notice the "ET" spelling, the different construction, and different QVC this time. How many variations on this theme were there ? Regards Jeff

Hi Jeff, I guess as many versions as there are makers. Will post another version tomorrow.

SNCO's glengarry badge attributed to Pipe Major Thomas Clark.
Silver plated die-struck back star, separate silver numerals.
His kirby grip replacement cotter pin holds the overlay tight even though only passing through the top lug. High degree of polish wear.

Another SNCOs glengarry badge all die-struck.
Gilt covered with heavy lacquer staining silver numerals to the centre.

Ron as always great badges. The lacquer staining; do you think that was added by a collector fairly recently (post WWII) or back in time, or in-service? Seen a few badges that have been lacquered.
