I think from the photographs the reverse looks quite crude.

Yes I like all of them..... especially the motto with the chain safety loop in the top and the pin and clasp. For me.... it puts this type into the early 1900s. I have a DHIY (Officers cast gilt washed) with similar fittings.

....on the DHIY Frank?

Hello Griff,
Yes, but, really nice obverse, were they always like that?
Regards Frank

Hi Frank

Its an Egyptian sand cast i think, made when they were posted there in 1916. Its a copy of one of the senior officers Jennens & Co badges.... either for himself .... or for his wife.

I found it in an antiques shop in the USA of all places. :)

Oh I see, that would explain it then, it just appeared so crude on the reverse, but, the front is very nice, I think if it was intended as a sweetheart brooch, any wife would be certainly delighted to receive it and I would think to wear it too.
