Default QYR and LSH

Hi, are these officers badges? if not how long have Canadian badges been produced in high polish and dead metal finish? Also when did the QYR change to a queen's crown? Thanks in advance Mike

Hi, maybe I didn't phrase my question correctly. The Queens York Rangers badge seems to have a different shaped crown. The previous crowns have side pieces to the top making it look more like a continental crown, whereas the new badge has what I would call a conventional queens crown. I have added pics to show what I mean, in the next post, best wishes Mike

Not a heraldically correct crown and perhaps the reason why it was changed?

Default QYR And LdSH

I would say both OR cap badges. LdSH Officers cap badges are silver and the QYR Officers Cap Badge is a different (wider) design
