Default Canadian QVC Militia Button

Hi Chaps,

I picked up this lovely Canadian Victorian Militia button. My first such button to Canada. As such my knowledge in this area is limited, so if anyone has any details they could share, I would be most grateful.

No makers mark and I assumed it's made of pressed horn. A QVC crown atop a bugle, surrounded by a circlet reading 'Volunteer Militia Canada'.

Cheers,

Roy
