Title Shako plate, possibly navy
Nationality Uruguay
Period c 1900
Price £50.00

This is probably a naval badge, on account of the anchor underneath the Uruguayan coat of arms. However, it is also possibly a generic military badge. If anyone knows what this is, I would be interested to hear.

The badge (7.5 x 6.5cm) is made of die-struck white metal and is in reasonable shape for its age, though there has been some corrosion in the past to both sides of the plate, now largely removed.

Prov: from the J.R. Gaunt & Son Ltd. Pattern Book Archive, sold at auction by order of the National Army Museum, London.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

The package arrived safely today. Thank you very much for the easy transaction and prompt shipping. I am very happy with the sword and hope to do business with you again.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
