Correct Mike, and the only maker (I think?) to punch the numbers on the badge itself

As for the "best" you are also right I think, only ever seen them on that issuer.

Congrats CD, looking forward to seeing it in the album

Interesting Mike, I've not seen a 1914 erased one I don't think. I'm sure you know the 1915's were, still conjecture as to why. Thanks for showing it, I'll be looking out for that now.

Hi All

I feel we will get to the bottom of this (keeping the 'balls' theme going ;)) But not without more examples of the plain version. I am hesitantly thinking the 10 ball version may be bad,...

I wonder, do the balls represent anything? Some symbolism or other heraldic reason? ie is there a reason they should be 9 and 10 is illogical?

We really need to call them 'dots' I think....:D

Hi Mike

very, very interesting. Just to hopefully add to the data base, I measured both today, and while it won't be 100% accurate, it is certainly close. As expected, the 9 ball crown is smaller,...

Hi Guys

just loving the info and the intrigue of this thread.

Mike, I like the idea the silver ones (in a colour sense) may have been for a small select group, hence the low numbers and...

Part 1, I sadly have no idea, but these silver/nickel badges seem to be very rare, and I am not convinced they formed part of the OWS set. That said, they could...
