    Thank you Joe. What is the difference between a First and Second Pattern? Date of manufacture?

    Yes, the difference is the different time frame. The reverse die is different.....you can compare self the difference in the reference thread too.

    Hi mate,

    The basic at-a-glance answer to that is the 1st pattern has the designer's mark incuse, whilst the 2nd pattern is of a raised type of lettering. The hinge crimp is also different between the 2 types, your 2nd pattern as shown above, and this 1st pattern CCC below for comparison. There is a slight difference regarding the obverse of both badges but it is small. The 1st pattern below has a straight hilt guard whilst the 2nd pattern is chamfered as can be seen on yours if you look closely.

    Regards, Ned.

    No problem, I was going to say thanks for the prompt response, but it was nearly 18 months ago..... Have you been (ahem) "on holiday"....
