Default 3 x 17th Lancers review

Gentlemen
A few more badges I recently found
The first is a brass with the old winking eye but is it the original die?
Kind regards Chay

Do please let me know if you decide to move on one of your two the solid scroll mottos. I forgot to bid on one a few days ago on eBay, ho-hum.

Hello Chay

Yes I like all of them..... especially the motto with the chain safety loop in the top and the pin and clasp. For me.... it puts this type into the early 1900s. I have a DHIY (Officers cast gilt washed) with similar fittings.

Hi Griff
Surely this is just an O/Rs conversion to a sweetheart brooch, it is clear where the slider has been removed.
Cheers,
Alex

I am not an expert or even slightly knowledgeable about these badges and despite all the amazing pointers Griff and others have put on the forum to identify not only fakes, but also different makers and periods of wear, I still would rarely try to say yay or nay on authenticity of Mottos. I am however a little surprised that the first badge of the second set of photos is considered original. The massive die-flaw diagonally across the forehead would have put me off straight away.
Cheers,
Alex
