An old thread but I have these 2 to compare. No void but a quality typical of Edwardian manufacture. A thick, die struck badge but with the reverse die with solid detail (such as the back of the crown). Both in high-spec gliding metal rather than a cast brass. they came out of an old collection and have been lacquered to preserve the finish. I am in 2 minds as to remove it or not.

it's always difficult to know whether lugs or sliders should be correct but in this case the dates of use tie in with the long 1903/ shorter 1905 sliders.

I would be interested to see an officers bronze/gilt version on blades which I suspect is voided.
