Default Norfolks question

Hi all,

I picture below a lugged version of the Norfolk's badge with brazing holes that came from an old collection and am are happy with this one. Still some old baord and felt residue glued to a lug but will take off another day.

I also show a slidered version (albeit at a jaunty angle) and with small circular brazing holes which is non-voided between her hand and the wreath. Is this non-voiding just a manufacturers pattern?

I am going to just retain all my earlier lugged versions and sell off my slidered ones as even I am starting to think I need to focus the collection!

Opinions on Norfolk's appreciated as have read the threads and this detail escapes me.

Thanks in advance, Dean.

Thanks Andy - the non-voided section I had not seen on Norfolks badge before - will keep the lugged, cheers Dean.

Dean,

I think that the non-voided section on your badge is nothing more than a manufacturing 'error' which seems to have passed inspection unnoticed. I have this exact 'mulit-berry' badge with no non-voided section at this point:

Simon (Longshanks) has a picture of a Norfolk Regiment badge showing large sections unvoided (post #6 in the following thread):

It looks to be the same 'mulit-berry' pattern, so this may well be a manufacturer with quality control issues .

All the best,

Peter.

Thanks Peter for the thread details. Yes it is the same manufacturers fault by the looks. I will let this one go shortly, cheers Dean.
