Default Canadian Mounted Rifles CEF

Hi All,
Here is a Mounted Rifles badge which I believe was worn by drafts to other MR regiments. Maker marked ELLIS BROS TORONTO.
Were these badges made in large numbers?
Thanks,
John

Hi John. These badges are not scarce. They were worn by a depot. They have been incorrectly identified as a badge for drafts.
