Well Bob, I have heard of this L/50 marked badge but that is the first time I have seen it. I'm not sure what to think of the mark. Does it appear to be original tothe badge. Is it raised or stamped in its hard for me to see from the scan. Very interesting to say the least as there are examples of this badge with a strange "4" marking as well. Many attribute it to S&L, I however don't subscribe to that theory entirely just yet.

Here is one that arrived today. A L/10 with unusual catch plate.

Greg, the mark is stamped and appears to have been done ahead of the finish.

Here is one a little less controversial...a bronze Zimmerman.

Very nice Zimmerman Bob, I'm still looking for one in Bronze myself. Here is one that arrived today, a semi hollow SHuCo with "UU" set-up. One of my new instant favorites.

Great Zimmermans, here is a tougher to find L/53. The hinge has been resodered but still a keeper.

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts...

It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
