Not sure if there are any decent pics showing an un-voided AA badge with Dorsetshire scroll.

Whether voided or not, an original, AA Dorsetshire Regiment cap-badge, with Dorsetshire scroll, in good condition is an ȕber-rarity, with less than a handful of known examples.

Unlike Dorsetshire scrolled badges, the Dorsetshire Regiment badge with Dorset scroll is a common badge.

AA Devonshire Regiment badge can often be picked up quite easily for probably around 20.

Cheers

Any anodised is now worth having.

Attached below are pictures of my unvoided Dorsetshire badge.

Mike - as the picture you attached of the voided version is a bit small, how sure are you of the authenticity of that badge? Just curious, no aspersions being cast.

Paddy ,you seem to be going blue. Are you having trouble breathing ?

A fellow member bought one at War and Peace a few weeks ago.

My Dorsetshire image came from the same person that sold me the large Liverpool UOTC badge years ago. I never realised that there was two versions of the Dorsetshire until I saw the ebay one.I also have an image of what appears to be an unfinished all siver one(non voided).
