Default Gaunt made sterling silver Parachute Regiment cap badge

A recent purchase, a Gaunt made silver Parachute Regiment officers cap badge
with a 1943 hallmark. Lugs have been converted to a brooch pin but I suppose beggars can't be choosers!

Still a fine and very pleasing badge despite the pin, I would be delighted with it.

A beauty, to be honest and from a collector perspective I like broached badges better than lugs or sliders.

A stunning badge Luc,

The pin looks to be contemporary or close to, so in my eyes only adds some character. A very desirable badge and one I would be thrilled to own.

Well done.

Roy
