Default Three good Indian Army badges

From the late Brig. Francis Ingall estate, except the 8th Punjab:
20th Lancers ( scarce as they were disbanded in 1937 )
8th Cavalry (unusual pattern with the K and O on the outside of lances )
8th Punjab Regt.
Asking 45.00 USD for the lot, includes shipping anywhere.

Just curious.

I have seen pictures of 20th Lancers (1922-1937) badges which have a crown on the crossing point of the lances and the XX sits between the crown and the scroll.

I have also seen a badge in the configuration you show, but that belonged to 20th Lancers op the Pakistan Army since 1956 (and since 1990 designated 20th Lancers (Haidri) (Punjab)).

For my untrained eye, your badge looks like being older and much better made then the picture I have from the Pakistani one.

So my question: were there (at least) two types in 1922-1937 (with and without crown)?

The examples I mean are here: 20th Lancers

According to Ashok Nath's Izzat - the badge of the 20th Lancers (Haidri) when formed in 1956 was made from silver , before a later smaller version made in white metal. I'm pretty sure the badge in question dates from the late 50's. A lot of the badges made by the Indian and Pakistan armies in the 1950's were of good quality - only later did they start producing badges of poor quality and cheap appearance that we see today. Can't believe no one has snapped these badges up - bargain ! Tim

Thanks for the explanation (and citing Mr. Nath is always very reassuring).
Thus this is most probably a Pakistani 20th Lancers of a much better quality then the one I referred to.
