Default Examples of "known" original riveted and the in question "fused" badge.

Here are examples and comparisons of the "known" originals and the "in question" fused examples.

First photo as seen previously on this thread is the "in question" fused type, so is the second, third, fourth, fifth photo. The last two being the same badge. The sixth photo is a Scully side view. The next is the fused badge showing the type of base metal. An original riveted version from Lt. Richer, the fused example I have beside a Scully.

The Group photos show 1. the end of the scroll of the "in question" fused badge with identical defect in the scroll as the 2. "known" riveted example which also appears more slightly on the 3. die cut bi-metal "so called re-strike stamped " and missing from the 4. "molded from a badge" example.

The second group photo shows the 1. die cut bi metal "so-called restrike stamped" badge beside the 2. "molded" white metal type and 3. "in question" fused type beside 4. Original Wm. Scully Montreal example.

Anyway when one compares details etc. the original "riveted" examples have no difference in detail than the "fused" types. There is however some differences between the "restrike stamped" and "molded" examples.

It is also interesting to note that there are also differences in the details of the "riveted" known originals. This suggests at least the possibility of two makers. Some are also made with the silver scroll covering the entire area behind the scroll while others, like the "fused" type only have the silver overlay cover the front of the scroll.
