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.

The day the blunderbuss arrives I could not stop looking and feeling the gun for at least one hour. My wife told me that I was sick........ I am very happy, it is a piece of craftsmanship! Well made! I have 5 blunderbusses but all iron barrel, also from England but this one is gorgeous with the Brass Barrel.

Please keep me informed when you have any other type of blunderbuss. Thanks my friend!
