Robert,
With a couple of exceptions, COTC badges are neither rare nor expensive. The pictures show officers' badges in bi-metal, enamels, etc. The COTC doesn't seem to have a large following of...

COTC sampler

Bored with lockdowns & pandemics? Me too.

or maybe not.

I had never seen an example of this badge prior to that auction either. It’s got to be a pretty rare piece, maybe even a one-of-a-kind.

What’s most interesting to me when ‘unknowns’ like this pop...

The gilt, silver & enamel pattern badges are described in the same General Order (G.O. 128 / 1932) as the typical blackened badges. There is no indication that the fancy badges were meant to indicate...

Strathcona's

Nothing new here, just experimenting with a new camera. You know you're getting old when your new telephone takes better pictures than your old Nikon ever did.

I have never found the Borden Tank collars in anything other than OSD bronze.
