Hi David,

Although these are scarce(ish) badges they are not rare and only come with a Tudor Crown. However, they remained on inventory until the late 1960's being replaced with the Tayforth University OTC cap badge. None were ever made with the St.Edwards Crown.

Although authorised to be replaced by the St. Andrews Uni OTC (as opposed to the UTC version) badge, at least at sketch level, none appear to have been manufactured.

Price wise I would say that 25GBP was more than enough and even at that price it should be in mint condition.

When writing my book I spent quite a few hours looking into this badge and more exact details with doco references can be found on pages 572-573.

Regards

Chris

Interesrtingly a form of this badge lives on. The pipes of Tayforth UOTC wear a scrolless badge in the collar with a KC and made from what i suspect is new "white" metal.

Hi Guys,

Not sure of the material content of these collar badges but they look very modern and possibly post A/A.

Note the use of the Tudor Crown.
