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.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.
