See this thread for pictures of MSC and AHC badges. They essentially wore the same badge exept for the lower scroll reading either 'Army Hospital Corps' or 'Medical Staff Corps'

This is the design of badge you would be needing. The lower scroll reads 'Army Hospital Corps' and is an extremely hard badge to find.

The same design of badge was used by MSC but the lower scroll reads 'Medical Staff Corps' and is a more common badge, but unfortunately widely faked.

My AHC badge has been silver plated somewhere in its life, but i am not sure why. It should be brass/gilding metal. The crown badges in the picture where worn as collar badges (a generic collar badge of the period)

Regards
Steven
