Default 7th Dragoons.

Thinking of buying this badge.
Have bought badges from this seller before, everything was fine. But don't have much experience with cavalry so thought i would check.
Any thoughts please.

A lovely genuine example of the pre-1906 badge.

A very typical example, but, fairly common, don't be tempted to pay too much.

Restrike, Impressive display. How did you get the striped frame? It really looks nice!

Humbrol modal paints. I got the idea off the RDG Museum website. I pencil in the lines. I then put strips of electrician tape at 45 and sixty degree angles then paint, its time consuming. Added the brass plate because i'm not the sort to pay four million pounds for a 4DG shoulder title !
