Default For Sale: Dublin Fusilier Officer Badge

Royal Dublin Fusilier officer badge, two piece construction. Slightly unusual as it has two blades rather than three. Possibly a lesser encountered variant?

70 pounds including registered postage.

I'd image it would be hard to get the detail of the stripes on the tiger and details of the tusk on the elephant via a sand cast?
Its a bit dirty too, looks similar to other die struck Officer badges I have, not as sharp in some areas as seen in the pictures.

It doesn't look like a officer quality badge to me. The back of the badge looks quite rough to me.

I would expect an officer badge to be very crisply struck and constructed to a very high standard.

I think some of the dirt and grim on it makes it look worse than it is. I agree it is not to as good a quality of other badges.

With this in mind I'll drop the price to 50 pounds including post.

The back looks truly awful - certainly not officer quality. Have a close look at the back - you can see its been cast rather than crisply stamped.
