Default Scots Guards SNCO Cap Badge Question

Gentlemen,
What time frame did this badge first appear? I’m aware of the AA version but was curious about when it came into use. Are there different versions of the bimetal badge?

Thanks!
Todd

I too would be very interested to know this. Hopefully someone will know.

Thanks Terry,

Me too. After looking around a couple days, I have seen 5 variations. I do not have any on hand, and I have no idea of how these fit in timeline wise.

1) back is hollow-you can see the front center piece(I think this is the first kind)
2) back is flat, but is indented with front image(reversed)
3) back completely flat
4) front piece is attached with prongs(?) to flat back
5) AA

All lugged-I think they are all fairly long. I’ll have to look a little more. Not sure if there are slidered versions.

I put them in order of age(what I surmise or guess it is.I have no idea honestly if there are genuine versions of each of these).

Todd

You must have a serious collection if you need to build an extension for it!

Keep smiling,

Dave

Likewise, my stuff's been buried under half the contents of the house for months, hopefully start getting it sorted soon.

I'm going to guess around 1880ish.
