bc,

There are 3 Perth Highland RV's on Ebay at present, you will find one every week. They are also widely available on most unreputable badge websites.

Some have copper loops and some 'silver' loops. They are not all genuine.

regards

thanks Simon
that response sounded a little politically correct.
are you aware of any genuine ones I can look at to compare?
cheers

The 18th Hussars officer badge with blades is good. It was one of another lot from the same seller that my hallmarked collar badges came from.
The OR 18th is a fake in my opinion as the crown is not voided, the numerals are poorly done, and the slider is more typical of the fakes.

Thanks CB
Enjoyed seeing your collars. Very nice.
Any idea what the officers badge would be worth.
Cheers
