Default 17th County of London Pouch Badge

Is this 17th County of London (Poplar & Stepney Rifles) a fantasy badge Please?
It has a QVC, but I have read that they were not fomed until 1908?

85mm x 70mm. Three threaded studs on reverse.
TIA

Will this be for sale shortly too? If so forum rules are you should state this from the outset.

The regiment existed from 1908 until 1967.
Its not a Victorian Crown,its a Guelphic crown.
Most commonly used by the Rifle Brigade on their belt plates. From approx 1823 right up to 1958,except for a 50 ish year period when the KC was used.
Appears on their last cap badge and used from 1952. But then carried on by the London Rifle Brigade Rangers.

If you are selling you have to state so before not do a cover all post in another thread.

I don't regard it as my job to police the forum, but as I recall you seemed a little irked when you were asked a while back if you were seeking assistance re. badges you intended to sell.

Nobody's taking a pop at you - it's simply that a basic rule of the forum is that if you are intending to sell a badge that you are asking questions about then you state that you are intending to sell it.

I believe that there's also a request that you offer the badge in question to forum members first.

Whatever, the point is that the forum rules require/ request that you state that if you are selling the badge you want people to help you with information about, you say so.

Presumably you've been unaware of this?

The colour, the manufacture, the un natural wear and the extremely poor quality scream fake to me.

I agree, the quality is very poor.

Thanks, I think you both are dead right. Looking at the Threads on the studs more closely, they are moulded and have a mould line on them so would never have taken a nut.
Cheers

May I suggest that you take a break from researching your forthcoming ebay sales and contribute to the forum rather than just using it as a sales tool.

With the greatest of pleasure Alan.
You really are a different breed to the antique community. They help out other dealers who are less experienced as well as collectors, and enjoy imparting their knowledge freely so everyone can benefit. A good look in the mirror may not go amiss to certain members.
I now fully understand why a very well known collector and seller left this site.

I think there’s a typo in there. Everyone = you.

Perhaps you’d be so kind as to take a leaf out of his book then.

I shall look forward to reading what you write on the Facebook group about us.

I am afraid you are taking advantage of collectors knowledge and generosity in helping out fellow collectors for your own personal gain.

I am suspending you for a week and if you return please read the forum rules about asking for advice and the need to declare that you are looking for information with a view to selling items.
