Just picked this very well made badge. I know what it is could someone suggest an approximate value?

Two different patterns of collar badges, when did they change from WM?

Hi, as far as I know, the brass collar was a restrike, not original. Regards Andrew

I can concur with Andrew. Brass was a restrike

Thanks guys, not a restrike as they are two different dies so a forgery?

Traist 19-02-21 01:06 PM

In my book a restrike or a forgery are both fakes.:D Have a great weekend.

Thanks all looking to obtain a matching wm collar.

Found a wm title, now looking for a match.

Added a few pieces to this card.
Can someone tell me what other badges were worn by the CSARC?

Milmed 06-01-22 12:33 PM

They continued to wear the CSARV hat and collars. Only the shoulder title changed.

There are also CSARV / CSARC officers badges in hallmarked silver. Only ever seen one set though. Collars were same as white metal ones but cap badge was different.

Thanks Milmed, do you know what buttons they wore?

Hi Ron,
Buttons were white metal with crowned winged wheel. No title or scroll.
