Default Royal Signals Collar Badges

Hi All,

Following on from another thread where I was asking about the metal the Royal Signals cap and collar badges were made of, can anyone help identify what I have here?

I bought what I thought was an OSD pair of collars but now I have them I'm thinking only number 2 is correct.

I'm wondering if number 1 is a grubby standard OR's brass an white metal, number 3 is an officer's gilt and I'm not sure about number 4.

I have looked at this site to try and ID them but I'm not really any further forward:

Any help would be appreciated.

Michael

Are they not all variations of the OSD bronze collar dog.
I don't think 3 is gilt but a burnished bronze badge.

Thanks Stephen,

I had no idea there were so many variations.

The quality of No.1 makes it look like an ORs badge painted brown/bronzed.

Thanks a lot, that would explain it being two tone but very dark.
