    The cypher and crowns are those of Queen Victoria i.e. pre 1901. I don't know of any instance though of a crown either side of the royal cypher though and suspect this may be an amalgamation of three seperate badges. Very unusual

    It's been cobbled together, although I suspect that the two crowns, are actually either pre-1881 officers collar badges, as the rank was worn on the collar prior to this period. Lieutenant Colonels and Lieutenants wore a silver bullion crown, but may have worn metal with a frock coat. By 1881 rank insignia of officers had made its way onto the shoulder.

    The centre piece of the badge is probably taken from a pouch badge or some other ornament.
