Need help with this badge,please!

Recommended Posts

I don't believe this is a military badge, but rather a broach representing the Scottish clan Macgregor. "E'en do and spare not" is a motto associated with the Macgregor clan; as well as a lion's head on their family crests.

I agree with IrishGunner... it is, apparently, a clan badge for Clan MacGregor. I believe it is hand-made due to it's carved appearance and the floral work at the bottom (instead of the more often seen garter buckle) leads me to believe it was meant to be worn by a woman. There are what appears to be silver stamps on the back, as well as a maker (M&C) and an abbreviation for Inverness. The fixture at the top on the obverse of the piece was meant for, I believe, a rank attachment (feathers).
