Hi guys,

 

I had  the  below badge arrive  recently  with  a  group. I  already  have  a  Coastal  artillery badge in my  collection. Can I have opinions on  this one please?

 

Thanks

 

Jim

It looks like a good tombak Juncker to me Jim.

 

An early round wire catch variant that shows typical wear for these badges.

 

Nice original badge.

 

Cheers,Martin.

I remember reading something about these badges and them being speculated as an early production. Forum consensus is that it is shown due to the quality (Tombak vs. Zinc) and the double stamping die, as shown on the reverse there is that circular crease just below the catch and such. 

 

I am voting for a fine tombak version. :thumbup:

 

Nice pick up.
