Default Canadian Badges-Era and Authenticty

I am trying to confirm the era of the attached badges and importantly are they in fact original or copies.

Thanks for your help

1. RCR 1894-1901?
2. Montreal Regiment CEF or later?
3. Lord Strathconas Horse Cap Badge(no apostrophe) and Officers Collar(with apostrophe)? CEF or later?

Regards

Mark

The Gaunt plates are the type associated with modern copies. Squared corners and the top and bottom letters "justified".

Hi Mark, by no means an expert, I collect to the RCR and have not seen one of those before. I have a couple of the style you show, bi metal types though. I have seen a die stamped version sold via a popular auction site but it was a WW1 version in brass. Would be interested to know if the badge is correct and issued, it would be another i have to find! Regards Mark

The RCR one is an 1894 pattern. See here: http://www.regimentalrogue.com/rcrbadges/rcr-1894.htm

Kind regards

The RCR badge looks good. I agree with Phil about the LdSH with the Gaunt plate.

Hi Darrell,

Not too annoyed as some nice CEF cap badges and collars in the lot and the RCR being genuine is a bonus.

Regards

Mark

The single-piece 1894 pattern RCR badges are known in two finishes, brass, and gilt. While the badge pattern was in use from 1894 to 1926/7, the specific period of use of the single-piece variations has yet to be confirmed. One theory is that they were issued to the 3rd (Special Service) Battalion at Halifax (1900-1902). This has yet to be confirmed by any documentary evidence. They are certainly not a common variation of the 1894 pattern badges.
