Hi,

A badge from a friends collection, the slider looks like it has been repaired and is offset. Opinions would be welcome.

Regards

Kevin

Talking Repaired!!!!

This must have been repaired or made after a very heavy drinking session, I have never seen a slider so offset . . !

Rob,

Thanks for your reply, yes it is a bit of a lash up!

Do you think, despite the bad repair, that the badge is good?

Kevin

I don't think it has been repaired just badly positioned.

Kevin, I can't see anything untoward with your badge apart from the slider being badly positioned, bear in mind this badge was produced only during the Great War.

Cool Army Cyclist Corps

Kevin, Maybe quality control had also been down the pub.

Alan, Rob and Luke,

Thanks one and all, so a good badge with a bit of character and yes I also think that a pint or two may have been involved.

Regards

Kevin
