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.

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.
