Hello John, yes itís a curious thing. I donít think that the change over was universal, it was more of a trend. The only thing that Iím certain of is that the round end numeral style had French origins.

Hello Jean-Marie,
That is very interesting, thanks for your find.
This badge is of a different pattern. Do you have the description, metal type?
Regards,
John

I have 22 various Head dress badges and belt clasps to the 63rd Foot.

17 have rounded 3's and only 5 have flat topped 3's.
