Default Post 1952 LYPAO White Metal ORs

Hi All

I found a new addition yesterday. These are all made from the initial batch of Other Ranks Collar badges from the factory. Coronation badges.

SNCO /Junior Officer dress cap badge.


ORs Cap dress cap badge.


ORs dress collar badges (later, in khaki, LDYPAO Leicester Squadron 1957-63)

....its the first one I have seen. So that's a good sign The patina on the loops and on the old collar stumps looks correct.

Your images are always exceptional quality - certainly book standard (better than most) - what is your method / equipment used please?

Fuji finepix S5600 camera (on the Macro setting) in natural light (south facing kitchen table) and Paint shop pro.

These images were actually taken by the seller and well done. So I just filled in the background and joined them together in PS.
* I will take my own when it arrives and i will post them up.

Many thanks for the clarification Griff - the results are stunning.
All the best and good hunting ...

As I have the OR's cap badge in w/m, it's nice to be able to add some detail to it.
