First I have seen this type of lug, if you look closely you would notice that a typical split pin would not work due to the angle of the holes. You couldn't slide a split pin straight across. Maybe round split ovals would have been used like a button type.

How do the lugs stay on, do they slide off the back? The void between the I and A looks ugly, cant see the army approving that.

The brass does look old, but maybe it was made for the movie Gallipoli back in the day?

Interesting piece.
