Title 79th Highlanders officer's plaid brooch
Nationality Scottish
Period mid-19th century
Sold

These were worn by officers, pipers and senior NCOs, the metal for the latter two being mostly nickel silver, while those for officers were either in fine quality silver plate or solid silver. This is of cast silver construction with an iron pin to the reverse. There are no hall marks, but this is typical of a mid-19th century example.

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
