Default Herts VR, opinions welcome

Hello, bought this badge recently, found it in an antiques cabinet on its own. Any opinions would be welcome.

Thanks Luke, I thought it was OK when I bought it. Nice addition to my Anglian collection.

Default Herts VR,

Same as mine, with a clipped slider, coincidence or for some reason?

Hi Rob, I also wonder why the slider is clipped quite so short.I can’t imagine how this would of been an advantage in any type of headgear? Has yours also got a dark patina, I can’t decide if it is the remains of a bronzed Finnish or ageing?

The badge was indeed bronzed and worn by the 1st and 3rd Battalions on the cap. I am away from my notes at present, but the subject of badges worn by the Volunteers is as you are probably aware, very complicated and somewhat incomplete. Mine has the shank (slider) unclipped and has lost the bronze finish.

Thanks Nozzer, I almost didn’t buy the badge because of the bronze Finnish. Because it has worn off of the high spots it looks a little like artificial ageing.
