Following the help from Mr J Temple west regarding my infantry Assault badge , and his request to see more pictures of the pin , I have now solved my picture uploading problem.

it related to an iOS 11 issue.

anyway , I hope Mr West sees this . The pin has no " crook" at the top as most others seem to but it does have age and patina to match the piece , a period replacement ?

Hi, Martin

Firstly, and on a lighter note...we are all friends here so there is no need to stand on ceremony ...It's John.

Right...yes, I would say that the pin has, at some point, has been replaced...when is anybody's guess. Still a nice example though.

The only time that it may become an issue is when the day comes that you decide to sell it on to perhaps upgrade to an all original example.
