Hi Tony......

I am not a badge specialist but I have a funny feeling about them......    My suggestion is that you post them on the following forum and you will have an answer in a matter of minuets I am sure......

Yes, try the 'Indian' thread on the Brit Badge forum - all the experts lurk there.  I haven't seen enough IA Ordnance badges in the flesh, so to speak, to have an opinion on these two.  The diffrence in toning is odd but not completely unknown - one a replacement or issued from two different lots originally might explain it.

Hi Gents

hi Mike, Peter...

i have to admit I am the 'sinner' who cleaned up the one on the left. They were a matching pair darkened but I felt compelled to clean one to see the detail. I thought the darkening was patina through age but the finish made me think maybe they were produced with a darkened finish. Or were fake and intentionally darkened to appear of age.

So. On this occasion I regretted my decision.

Picked up for 3 quid I can't complain if they are copies but I will see what I can find out....

thanks as always both

cheers

tony
