Default LANCERS Please some 2nd opinions on these LANCERS cap badges THANKS

Gentlemen,

Recently I acquired a substantial number of cap badges and I would very much appreciate your help in ascertaining originality and that these are correct for either WW1 and/or WW2 era. Thanking you in advance for your help.

Cheers, Tom

Thanks for your reply.

That is okay - seller will take back what is not good.

Do others agree with 24th Lancers being a reproduction?

Yep I agree common reproduction unfortunately, one of the main give away on this badge is the small fillet of metal on the Lance end touching the circlet just above the R .

The 27L is a Marsh pattern fake.

Best,

I most certainly agree with the previous comments regarding the 24L badge.

The 5L is a modern fake too, in my opinion.


Best,

Marcus
