Title Bullion badge, Civil Service Rifles
Nationality British
Period c 1910
Price £50.00

This could be a side cap badge or an officer's collar insignia off the full dress parade tunic of the pre-1914 era. My guess is that the two badges were identical and that the tunic badge was simply used on the side cap.

The backing behind the motto is white silk. The backing to the whole badge is pale buff and their dress uniform was this colour in the Edwardian period, hence my strong suspicion that it is CSR - please correct me if I am wrong.

Just under 4 cms high, the badge is in good condition, but, of course, the bullion is tarnished. The reverse is backed with paper, quite normal for this period, indeed right up to fairly modern times. The paper is slightly soiled and crumpled, as one would expect.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
