Hi all, I'm new to posting on the forum so hope i'm doing it right!

I have come across these cap badges and collar dogs that I have no idea about and hope the experts on here can tell me if they are original or not.

Having read the thread on the 9th lancers I now have my doubts it is authentic, which brings the whole lot into question.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Glenn

Welcome to the GMIC!

Not an expert on badges but the 22nd - 'les Vandoos' - look ok.  I assume it is missing a slider which would have been soldered to the back of the crown.

There is a British Badge Forum with a large section on Canadian as well as British badges and many badge experts too.  https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/forums/.

I am assuming that the 22nd badge is genuine, BTW, based on my sketchy knowledge of modern Cdn badges and the fact that they are common and inexpensive enough that I can't see there being a market for fakes.  But I've been wrong before!  BBF is your best bet.

i have had similar feelings about many of my badges....

i enjoy badges because they can be picked up at a good price in groups like this. I used to think if one or two were maker marked, if just one or two were genuine then it was worth it, it turned out maker marks and ‘age’ meant little!

So usually it’s a mixed bag....

Ive shared images of a few of mine and it turns out some that look good are bad and  some the other way.... 

let us know if you got any help on the other forum....

best wishes

tony

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
