Default Norfolk

I am sure this is a Norfolk Regt sweetheart badge, because it is so small and the pin fixing.
What I would like to know is has anyone else got one based on the shoulder title but to another regt. Please post photo if you have.
Thanks andrew

Hi Gary , my gut feeling is gold plate, no hallmarks, but it does not look a brass colour. I was had thought that forum members may have a title the same size, but to there Regt.

Hi again Andrew.The picture of the back is not that great.The retaining "C" clasp is a sign of quality, having the moving safty catch.If its gold it will have very heavy feel to it.I am not saying I have seen every brooch out there but it could be a one off.Very interesting thanks for showing.
