Default Help need to ID period

I have an issue dating a pair of collar badges bearing the St.Edwards crown. I'm aware that the crown was used by Queen Victoria and Queen Elisabeth. So i'm presently assuming the age by construction as I would think post-1953 the assembly would have been "neater". Then again I might be wrong!!

Would appreciate your thoughts.

Thank you.
Vincent

Vincent,

That is 100% a QEII Crown and not a QVC.

regards

Thank you Simon. I believe they were custom-made and not standard KOMR issue.

Regards.

As far as I know, the Victorian Crown in this case was the Imperial (flat-topped crown)
