Hi all.

Found this over the weekend. Looks like a hand cut out Boer war Border Mounted Rifles badge.

Any thoughts?

It's a complete assumption on my part. That's why I'm open to suggestions.

It could be something entirely different. I don't know.

I'm new to medal collecting and have no knowledge of badges etc so can't help you confirm what it is but some of the experts should be able to help you.

Looking at the crude workmanship and patina  I would agree on your age estimate but as I said I'm not an expert so I'll be gladly corrected if I'm wrong.

This looks like it is theater made, which is quite common.....    It is the same pattern as shown in Owen for the Boer War period.....

Thank you for the response. Just to get the terms correct and please forgive me for something that might sound a bit silly to the more longer term collectors here.. By 'theater made' do you mean made in the field of operations locally or made for use in reenactments of the battle and as such is more of a replica?
