Default Yes, No, Maybe, I don't know, Would you repeat the question?

Your thoughts and (printable) comments on this helmet plate that I got from the same source that provided all of the WWI, Canadian and Indian badges that sold so well here. I can't remember if I added the red baize for contrast or if it was on there originally. Thanks for your input.

In this regard, being that I am not familiar with these, how does one discern a fake helmet plate from genuine? Have often seen them pop up on ebay etc., but never sure of them.

I think the centre looks fine, I cant say for certain it's always been paired with that plate though.

Thanks for the replies. Based on what a repro plate is selling for on eBay I'm going to list it there as it is.

Are not the large plates supposed to have U shaped wire loops instead of cap badge style lugs?

Well it seems, like the Curate's Egg, it is 'Excellent in parts'. It's on eBay for 80 for anyone willing to take a punt.
