In my book a restrike or a forgery are both fakes. Have a great weekend.

Added a few pieces to this card.
Can someone tell me what other badges were worn by the CSARC?

They continued to wear the CSARV hat and collars. Only the shoulder title changed.

There are also CSARV / CSARC officers badges in hallmarked silver. Only ever seen one set though. Collars were same as white metal ones but cap badge was different.

Hi Ron,
Buttons were white metal with crowned winged wheel. No title or scroll.
