Two army metal insignia (different crowns)

Recommended Posts

Hi Gents 

Mismatched pair....j

Crowns differ so assume one old one new. ? Both very stiff metal. Backs different too...

I think these are 'Army' collar insignia.....

Hello : They are spanish , collar pieces , the open crown was used between 1939 and 1975 , the second type of crown was implemented with the arrival of king Juan Carlos to the throne . the cap badge of the Spanish Navy also changed the crown type in 1975 . The crowned eagle with the sword of the apostol Santiago on the chest was and is the coat of arms of the Spanish Army ,cap badge , and in this case collar badge

Thanks both.,...

they belonged to the same man so perhaps his service covered the 1975 changeover
