It seems to have come from the large Indian Army badge collection that was sold at auction recently. Barry seems to have purchased quite a few of the lots.

The third may be a 1916 all G.M. badge but may also be a fake. There are signs that it came from a worn die and I am not happy with the slider. The finish is a bit odd and I suspect that it might be...

The second is possibly an O.S.D. collar badge. It is of a poor standard of finishing and may be a fake. It has traces from a cracked die at the top left, a damaged rim to the circlet and damage to...
