The QVC 4th Hussars is a good fake, I was nearly caught out by one a few years back. You’ll notice the lettering is ever so slightly rounded at the ends, seeding slightly coarse and the loops are...

Your badge is genuine and from the same die as other examples I’ve seen with the correct Lambourne mark.

If it’s too ‘rustic’ for you I’d be happy to take it off your hands as I have a bit of a...

Not a genuine 1916 all GM issue.

Do please let me know if you decide to move on one of your two the solid scroll mottos. I forgot to bid on one a few days ago on eBay, ho-hum.

I believe there is a lot of debate about the GviR badges. My inclination is that they are Malta Fortress Royal Engineers from what I have read in other threads and also the number seen. Many examples...

I agree with Keith, an interesting badge. Looks very pleasing and rather nice quality. Could it potentially be an NCOs item going by the construction?

Yes, very fake.

Edit: I’ve added a pic where my genuine example is visible. Sorry I don’t have it to hand to take an individual pic right now but you can see the difference in the crown.

It’s genuine. Had been on North East Medals for a while at a very reasonable price, surprised it hadn’t sold before now to be honest. A good buy.

I cannot access the photo.

Is the album it’s in set to ‘private’? If so you will need to change to ‘public’ for all members to see.
