Default The Welsh Regiment cap badge - good or bad

Hi all,

I got this badge here with the job lot and I don't have any interest to keep it. Therefore I was thinking to put it up on sale if its original. Before I list it, could you please advise what more knowledgeable collectors think about this item - good or bad.

Thanks!

It obviously has some ago to it, verdigris on the slider.

I'm afraid it's not a pre 1920 pattern example I'd go for.

I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it as such, it’s just not a particularly good example of the badge. I’m sure that you will find a less fussy collector happy to have it, especially if they are just starting out.
