Seaforth Highlanders – 78th Regiment of Foot – Brass Glengarry Badge
A nice example with good age – Possible original or perhaps a Fox & Company an early restrike circa early 1900’s – Came from a large military badge collection compiled in London in the 1960’s. The little known company called Fox & Company that originated in Southsea, Hampshire, England, in the early 1900’s. Even to this day not that much is known about the company. Somehow they had acquired the majority of the original sets of dies for the then obsolete glengarry cap badges which had been worn by the British Army during the period 1874 -1881. Great for display as part of a collection or re enactors.
A brass badge
Approx. 56mm high x 62mm wide
