Bought this recently off ebay. It was listed as a 10th canadian infantry battalion collar title, but I thought it might be a shoulder insignia. I don't know much about these. I've seen the larger numbered ones ( ones with 3 digits) but this one has much bigger numbers. I just wanted to know a little more about it.... thanks for looking

Unfortunately this is missing its lugs, and was in an advanced state of decay, so in order to try and save what was left of it I gave it a CLR bath.... not something I like doing, but I saw no other alternative.

Not an expert but I believe most of the WWI battalions wore a curved 'CANADA' on the shoulder. many also has embroidered regimental titles on the upper arm.

It doesn't appear that the 10th CEF wore a plain "10" either, so my guess is a pre-1914 militia cap badge, as Cdn militia did wear brass numbers on the peaked service dress hat.

I hope that is some help, if only in narrowing your search for further information.
