Looks as a cap badge for Territorial Army  for Christians ,the non Christians used a plate . the quality of Imperial Rusian Army pieces of uniform varied enormously ,

I may be wrong but I seem to recall this being described as a 'militia badge'.  I would also lean, slightly, towards it being authentic, but it's way out of my main fields of collecting.

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it‚Äôs 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‚Äôs¬†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 Armenti√®res. I was eight years old.¬† Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts...

    • 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
