Smile RND mini collection

Hi all,

I wanted these for the hex lugged shoulder titles but the Hood and Nelson both have Gaunt plaques and bronzed RND Officers badges to centre have nice blades so may be ok - rest of badges are copies IMO.

From the image the Tally looks OK - further opinions welcome

The Hood badge looks like it could be good. Will have a further look when you put up more pictures. The 2nd badge down in the middle row, if it has blades then there is a good chance it is good as well. Would be good to see front and back of the machine gun badge.

Thanks Mike and Paddy - will take them out and photograph the rest tomorrow, it is a felt covered ply board and takes a bit to free them without damaging lugs and blades, cheers Dean.

Not a big fan of the MGC badge and would say it is a copy.

Me neither Paddy - officers bladed ones should be ok I think. I have Gaunt plaque examples for most of the others so will mount up ok on the board and have some collars to add. Cheers Dean

There is only 1 Officer's cap badge on your board, the top one in the middle row, the 2nd one down is a CPO's badge but just as hard to get hold of a good one with intact blades as it is to get an officer's one.

Lovely collection, even if there is a dodgy one. Quite a few I need in there too!

Any chance of a close up of the tally please?

Now the worrying part, how has it been fixed to the board?
