Default NMR buttons

Hello South African members,
I have a couple of small NMR buttons which are possibly for Natal Mounted Rifles. The QVC GM one has maker Hobson & Sons Lexington St. London, the KC WM one has maker Firmin London.
Please confirm if correct. Thanks, John

Hi John,
They look good to me, though your QVC brass one would have originally been blackened(or bronzed). I have a similar sized UMR in bronzed brass.
