Default CEF 12th Battalion Badge

Hello,

I would like to know if this 12th Battalion badge is an original item or a reproduction.

I would welcome any help on the matter.

Many thanks,

Invest

Were the 12th Battalion badges not oxidised ?

I've been told off site that this 12th Battalion badge is an original.

I would really appreciate the views of Canadian members that collect to the CEF.

The 12th Battalion badge isn't oxidised, it's actually browning copper.

Hello Investment,
The badge you have appears to be fine. It is a variation, less common than the usual pattern.
