Wow! Major gilt trip.

Reminds me of that dealer who admitted cutting up a Crimea War tunic to sell buttons.

As we’re having a group therapy session. As a teen I bought a pre 1937 Norfolk Regt badge at a boot fair. When I got it home doubt set in as I didn’t think it looked old enough on the back. I then decided it must be a restrike and snapped it in half.

Hindsight knowing what I know now, it was 100% genuine. The gilt lives with me to this day.
