Default Duke of Albany

Good Morning . We found this , what I would determine to be , crossbelt
plate in an antique shop .
We were trying to locate a good photo of this regiment ,
not much luck on-line . Also, as to how this fastened
onto the belts with the 4 lugs .
Thank You .
Robert.

As to whether it is original or not, I can't say; however it certainly looks good.
The lugs were attached to the belt through slots, just like button holes.

Well, there you have it. Badges and plates from this period are almost invariably fake, which is why I have never have never felt comfortable to make a purchase.

Considering we only paid 15$ CDN for it , it's no great loss .
I'm not going to shed any tears over it .
Forget it , move on .

There are 4 common plates of this type which were originally produced for the 1968 Charge of the Light Brigade film.

Hugely copied since and 99.5% of therm are copies of copies.
Should be able to pick them up for about $6 each direct from India.

These have been appearing since at least the 1970s.
