Default Some of My Assorted Bits

Thought I would share a few of my other bits that I've had for 15-20 years. Don't really collect Australian though. That is only a small part of my Napoleonic collection, but the bulk is not framed/mounted.


Australian WWI


Some of my Scottish badges


My WWI Guards badges


A few of my Napoleonic pieces

I know nothing of Napoleonics beyond my Funken booksHistorex and Airfix model childhood, but those badges are nice.

The only items I have from that period are a Hanoverian Waterloo medal and a Prussian medal.

Nice collection.

Sadly the Household Battalion badge is a fake, as are the LG and RHG badges with the annealed v in the cypher. The Guards Machine Gun Battalion also looks like a repro to me.

Hi Terry,
Thanks for sharing.
Note that the Maori warrior badge is a New Zealand 30th Reinforcement collar badge.
Cheers, John

The Victory Peace Medal is nice. You almost never see it with the ribbon.

Thank you gentlemen.

Luke, can you be more specific as I am not sure what you are referring to on he ones you say are fake. After I read your reply, I looked hem over very closely, but could not determine what you are referring to about the "annealed V in he cipher???

Thanks,

Terry

The repro ones have the side of the V of the GV cypher touching the R of GR. The genuine ones have the V hanging down so that neither side of the V is touching the R of GR.
