Thanks for the replies. With a king's crown, I doubt if the badge could be from New York. Mike, is it possible to access the Military Historical Society online?
Can you tell me what they said it...

The terms "Cossum1" or "500" don't mean anything to me. The first book he published, i.e.book number 1, was 1930-42 badges. Badge number 1 would therefore be much later than number 1 in the 1903 book...

Naval Artillery Volunteers

Never seen the NAV cap badge before, thanks for posting! I think a QVC badge exists but have never seen one.
I have a NAV button with a QVC, was there a KC button to match the cap badge?

Is this badge British?

This looks like an artillery crossbelt badge. If not British, what is it?
