Hi Folks,

Can someone help me identify the insignia below? It looks to be a WW1-era Canadian Military Police insignia but I haven't seen any like it nor is there anything like it on the Canadian Military Police museum website. There is no maker's mark and the back looks unusual with no lugs - any thoughts on what it would attach to?

Two comments.  With that back, I'd say its' a modern re-cast of something, rather than an actual issed badge,as clearly there is no way to attach it to anything.  Second, while I'm out of my comfort zone with police stuff, I've got two old two-piece Toronto Police badges, which are a maple leaf with an added 'crown over beaver' in the center.  I've also seen pics of other older police badges which feature a malpe leaf.  It seemed to be a, if not 'the' common shape/background for various force.  I realize that's not a lot of help, but at least this lloks to be a remake of an actual badge and not a complete fantasy piece.

Haven't seen anything like that before and as Peter says I see no way of attaching it to anything unless you are going to stick it to a plaque or perhaps a card holder type wallet or similar.

Sorry can't be more helpful, Simon

Hmmm the plot thickens.. All good suggestions - thanks Peter and Simon. If it is a reproduction I'm glad I didn't pay much for it. I'll update this thread if I get any new insight.

My next question at this point is why someone would have this made?

It's not really a "reproduction " because no one can identify the source..

Im my humble opinion, it is a complete fabrication aimed at deception for a quick buck...
