Default Canadian Parachute Battalion Cap Badge

Any thoughts on this? The lugs look odd but I think it's good.

Looks like it was turned into a brooch at sometime.

The badge itself looks good.

Its a correct badge, but the lugs were replaced with a brooch style pin that has been lost.

Hello Gents,

From what I can see from the picture, they are original to the badge and not an alteration. Those are often referred to as "Ellis lugs" because they are flat metal lugs with the hole punched out. Looking at the style at the base of the lug remnants along with placement on the badge, I am confident they are original. These are seldom encountered but do exist. The only thing I am perplexed with is why they were cut off???? Might you be able to post another angled shot of the lugs, please?

Cheers

It looks very similar to mine. It should be 39 mm high if it is an original badge.

The manufacturer McKenzie-Clay produced some of these badges and used flat cut sheet brass lugs.
