Hi Larry,

I have a sterling silver (officers) badge to 249th. Will sort out some photographs soon for you.

Cheers, Roy.

Hi Bill,

No makers mark just 'sterling'.

Hi Bill and Larry,

Sorry totally forgot about this one but just now pulled the camera out for some photos (see attached).

And will send you a high res image Larry in due course.

The badge appears to have been worn and polished. The back is a little more tarnished that the photo shows (a trick of the light). And the high areas of the front are a little more polished than the rest, which leads me to thinking it was worn and polished. Nevertheless a lovely badge.

Can't see any makers name but 'sterling' is stamped vertically in the center.

Cheers, Roy.
