Title 7th Foot, Royal Fusiliers glengarry badge, OR's (Fox's re-strike)
Nationality British
Period c 1889-1902
Price £30.00

This is the smallest type of badge for the 7th Foot - almost certainly one of Mr Fox's re-strikes. It is, as far as the obverse is concerned, good and a near contemporary example, while the reverse is slightly fuzzy. It is priced accordingly.

The original badges were in service 1874-1881. Mr Fox's re-strikes were produced c 1889-1902 to satisfy the demand of collectors at that time, and were quite faithful to the originals, except for the placing of the lugs at the middle, rather than North/South as on the originals.

It measures nearly 5 cm and is struck in yellow brass.
