Second Pattern Regimental Officer's Headdress Badge - Genuine

The first of two different examples of genuine second pattern Regimental Officer’s headdress badges in gilding metal is shown in Figures 127-129.  The first badge is gilt and is die cast with a semi-flat back.  It has three loops with one behind the centre of the Prince of Wales’s plumes and the other two positioned east-west at the ends of the Regimental motto scroll.  The pinched loops are also gilt and lack feet.  This badge was part of a display set made by Firmin of London.
