Greetings Tinto.

I do not offer any expertise on these particular badges, but I must confess I like this offering and in my opinion I believe it's a genuine item.

As always though, I stand to be corrected.

Regards.

Brian

Hi Brian,
Thanks for your comments.
I wondered about the numeral "3" which is different from the usual flat-topped 3 seen on other 3rd Lanarkshire Rifle Volunteers badges.
Regards,
John

I think itís a very good and genuine badge, with a crisp striking and compelling signs of natural ageing. The style of the numeral is typical of the earlier usage with the bulbous ends typical of numbers used on soldiers forage caps.
