Hi Michael
They're all repro's out there of that badge. I've been collecting now for twenty five years and have yet to see a genuine one.
Regards
Neil

Thanks Neil,

I had been told they were pricey but hoped I might have got lucky.

Not to worry,

Michael

The 19H single scroll is not uncommon and can be easily obtained for c.£60-70.

Are you referring to the double scroll Nelly of which there are only 7 or 8 known genuine examples?

Default 19th Hussars - Opinions Please

Hello,
The very first purchase I ever realised on eBay (the year 2000) was this single scroll 19th Hussars badge. I understand that most of these badges are copies, but still I'd like to let you have a look at it.
It's a rather heavy piece, pretty thick metal. I don't know what to think about it. A specialist's opinion would be highly appreciated before I sell.
Many thanks,
Kurt

I would say, from the photographs, it is of recent manufacture and post dates the period the original badges were actually worn.

I have never seen an example like that. It appears to be brass and cast, whereas the known originals were in white metal.

Somewhere on the forum there is an in depth thread on identifying fakes of this nelly badge. I've had a quick search but couldn't find it but with a bit of time I'm sure it could be located. It was quite a long time ago.
