It purports to be a WO Pattern 4362A/1896 - worn between 1896 and 1926. BUT this is a very common ghastly fake. It appears in BM, GM, WM and even what passes for bronze !

I think there are a couple of Forum people who have one or two of these 'trade catalogues'. The are quite a few at the NAM too - one I saw was dated 1904 (though I assume there were other editions).

Yes Noxin - loops for that die. Not sure about the last one.
