Hi
What makes these extremely rare rather than rare?

In view of reading various posts concerning whether Tiptaft badges were worn exclusively or not by Light Horse, may I ask if a unit would really have its complement wearing badges with differing finishes? (blackened brass. blackened copper, black bronze, bronze, etc)
My only Tiptaft badge (slidered) is blackened copper; my LHB title is copper face with black back

All badges whether Hat,collar,shoulder title were worn by the AIF including the slider and maker marked or non marker marked.In a combat situation I would imagine your badges would be subdued ?

Hi GTB
I don't think there is anyone on this forum who believes tiptaft badges were exclusively worn by LHR. And if there is then every experienced Australian collector would set them right

I just came across this Tiptaft rising sun that's for sale online but the writing on the slider & the W /I\ D don't seem right. Can anyone confirm if this is a fake?

In fact that 'sprayed-on' type of finish is a hallmark of our old mate the Bulgarian faker isn't it.

There's a couple Rising Sun Tiptafts on Ebay at the moment. Neither are outstanding but you may be interested.....
