Both look fine tony, the dug up is post 1920 with Welch spelling though is  a one piece? and the bimetal is pre 1290 with Welsh spelling.

 

Here are two dug up great war Royal Welsh Fusilers

I picked these two collar.(thanx Terry) tabs up together... 

Apparently they were found at a closed scrap metal yard ——

Such a difference to this one :

Sorry to have been the bearer of bad news.

By the way, I am also a Cardiff lad, well not a lad any more and no longer living in the Diff.

Sadly they are also copies, the originals have a number of quite different details, note the wings of the dragons for one and the lettering of the CARDIFF at the base, both very different

Hi Jerry

Thanks for your help with these again.

The detail on the dragon is, as you say, clearly different. The wings and also the tail points down on the copies. 

I’ll keep trying

thanks again

tony

.....I see a FAKE!

* wings wrong

* CARDIFF lettering wrong

* Motto across the top has no gaps

I’m learning!

thanks for your help....

All true, the wrong things become obvious once you can compare to an original.

 

I can't remember the last time I saw an original for sale
