Default Liverpool Pal's for Opinions please

Hi J and All.

All Opinions Welcome.

This is the badge I am not sure of.

Fingers crossed it's a good one. 🙏

Thanks Mark

There are three types of OR's Lpl Pals badge. The first badge was provided by the Earl of Derby in November 1914. It is cast in brass with a flat back.
The second was die struck in gilding metal (GM) with NS loop, issued officially in summer 1915.
The 3rd type was again - official - die struck (also GM) with a slider.
All of them were "painted" with a dark brown colour (cf Household Cavalry and many Yeomanry badges).


I have to admit a niggling doubt about the very heavy edge of the reverse. But others will have other opinions.

I would agree with KLR, the edge on the rear looks very pronounced, I've looked at the rear of mine and they aren't as 'sharp' looking

Your badge is from the same die as this one.

Although I don't feel qualified to make a comment as to the originality of the badge in question, it does not appear to be of the same die as this. Close examination will show a multitude of minute differences, ie., the fleur de lis on the coronet, the G in changer, the scroll endings etc.

The ermine pattern (not fleur de lis) on the cap are the same, an arrow shape topped with what looks like a clubs playing card shape.

Simply on the badge in the OP they are not as well defined due to the manufacturing process, however it is possible to discern the same shape on the ermine far right.

Similarly the scroll ends are the shame, the difference being how the badge is finished and removal of the excess metal.

The G can hardly be seen on the badge I posted a picture of due to the quality of the photo and light/shine so any comparison here is a trick of the light.

Yes, I can see the the similarities now. It looks like the badge in question is likely bad.

From the photographs, I would think the badge is not original.
