As Hoot said you’ll be very lucky indeed. In last decade I’ve only seen two for sale, one of which I now own.

That would appear to be from the Bent and Parker die. Griff has a hallmarked one on his site dated 1905 so it is potentially much earlier than being the last type worn by the 17L. Can I ask how you...

I know a few dealers have made their own light boxes, Geoff Newman and Philip Heeks if I recall. Whilst they may be a bit Blue Peter they work and in my opinion their photos come out well at what...

Thanks Keith. I think the Essex is definitely a match for the repro.

From memory the T-RGA-Lancashire title was I thought quite thin. I’ll check it when I get home but I think it’s likely a repro...

Are they thinner or thicker Keith? Believe it or not I don’t have a single shoulder title in the house, these aside.

Thanks Chris, CB and Simon.

The MGC collars are proper tiddlers, so much so they do look a little silly. Found what appears to be a pic of them in wear though.

Many thanks for the ST comment...

Looks like exactly the badge as worn in the Brodricks to me but flame edges less apparent due to the lighting conditions.
