Default re Crighton's

Got an answer from Jaime at Marway's regarding the maker marks on the Crighton badges in their upcoming auction.

Here is her note, in brief:

"On All three badges, the makers stamp is quite faint, but I make out CRIGHTON'S with no E. T275 shows the best markings, the other badges are quite faint. I wonder if it's a typo in Charlton, I've attached a picture... . You're welcome to use it on the forum if you want."

As it appears all three in the current sale are marked "Crighton's" (or "Crichton's", which is what it looks like to me), her question about the correct spelling and Charlton may be accurate. Question now is, does anyone actually have a badge with the mark spelled as "Creighton's", or one with a clear 'G' as opposed to a 'C', for that matter?

My thanks to Jaime for this info, as with the upcoming show circuit and sale I know she's busy.

Default More CEF makers

The CEF badge manufacturer mentioned by DavidS is Kinnear d'Esterre, a jeweller in Kingston that finally closed up shop in Kingston about five years ago. As shown by the evidence, they did manufacture CEF badges, but their later activities were mostly in the area of making Royal Military College-related badges and jewellry.

I'm sure you guys already know about these books but I thought I would post them anyway.

The Charlton Standard Catalogue of
First World War Canadian Infantry Badges. by W.K.Cross

The Charlton Standard Catalogue of
First World War Canadian Corps Badges. by W.K. Cross

These are two really good books. They show the badge, alot of the collars, type of finish ie: pickled etc, along with the manufacturers and the going price. About 8 years back I picked up an arm band with a bunch of badges on it. I bought it for the British badges on it, about 15 of them. It had a Canadian badge on it. At the time I knew nothing about Canadian badges so I gave it to a collector friend. About 2 years later I bought the books mentioned above. As it turns out the badge was in the book. The badge was, as I recall a
"1st Trench Mortar Battery badge". I looked it up in the book and promptly choked on my coffee. The badge listed for around $200.00 I paid $15.00 for the lot. Needless to say I now identify EVERY badge before I give it away, trade it or sell it. A lesson learned "The Hard Way"

Cheers, Michael

That one is also missing from the CEF images on the frontpage.

Maker's mark on the back of the "167e Bataillon Canadien Francais F.E.C."

"Caron Frères 1916 Montréal"

Voilà.

Default Queen's Crown Maker Marks

Jaime Cline emailed me with a maker mark from a queen's crown sterling silver PPCLI cap badge. Does anyone have more information about the maker PB LTD?

Hi TRT,are sure about the name Ryrie Bros Ltd? I have access to Montreal's City Directories for the period 1914-1920 and they are not there. Also the 81st CEF was recruited in Toronto.
Cheers
Jo

Hi Hans, The image is the Tiptaft mark. Can't quite make out the second part, but I think it is B'MHM? or some similar mark?

For the WW2 section, some badges have been listed after the maker. Additions welcome. And, images of authentic Canadian maker marks are still needed for the catalogue of maker marks on the home page of the forum.
