Copies of these badges abound. Something akin to navigating a minefield. This subject has been covered extensively on the Forum in the past. If you use the "search" facility you will find a wealth of information posted by the cavalry guru's. Hope this will be of some help to you.

Thanks Leonard.
I read the threads back to 2008 and I am sure three of the seven badges are fakes but I'm not sure about the other four.
I would like to know particularly about the double scroll with slider and the odd brass three lug single scroll.
Cheers,
Bill

Hi All

Back to old Nelly, We Can't find any photographic evidence of the Double scroll elephant being worn . Yes we have seen an HM silver Example.

I would appreciate views on this one

Default 19th Hussars Foreign Service Helmet Badge

Hi Tony

I had always understood the 19th Hussars FSH badge to be an elephant with NO scrolls whatsoever facing the opposite way to the Arm Badge, i.e. to the left as you look at it. This is modelled on the elephant that appears on the Officers' crossbelt.

Best wishes

Gordon

Having being in contact with a 19th Hussars collector in the recent past, as interesting as these badges are and they are certainly better looking than the run of the mill re-strike, those with the raised rear leg off the ground are definently NOT genuine.

Andy (Magpie) has one of these, it'll be interesting to know where they originate from and how long ago they started appearing.

Hi Keith

If your 19h collector is still contactable could you ask him for his opinion on the attached elephant and also if he has any pictures or details of the buttons worn by this regiment please?

Many thanks

Gordon

This Heffelump looks a bit different from the single scroll variety I have seen. Looks as though it was won by the vendor at the same Canterbury auction as the double scroll puggaree badge was.

Gaz,

The lettering is certainly different and the front leg looks a bit skinny, also is it cast or just dirty? That auction lot sold for £3,300!

Gordon,

Will do, nice looking badge though and something I've never seen before.

Default Double scroll

4 years on, but I posted a photo of an identical double scroll badge on the C, Y, T/R forum recently. The slider is shorter.

Maybe he is and I've had excellent badges from him but not everything bought at auction is genuine, this badge is a notorious gap filler and has been for forty odd years. I have an article highlighting the early appearance of the double scroll 19th Hussars reproductions, not even re-strikes as the raised back foot is completely wrong.

I was wondering if these 2 elephants I have in my collection are infact original or reproductions , the one on the left has 3 lugs and better detail than the one on the right with 2 lugs, both appear to be from the same die,

The two lugged example is a good example of a proper badge whereas I have my doubts about the three lugged example, which has no space between the tail and the elephant.

Thankyou , i was thinking the other way around im not sure if these are rare or have any value but the pictures dont quite show but apart from the tail they are from the same die , its amazing how a camera can make things look a different shape ,
What age are they from?
