    As Ade says, 'pre war quality' - the standards dramatically lowered as the war went on. Late 1930's badges are of much higher quality in terms of construction and materials compared with those made in 1943/44/45.

    It is in excellent condition too..........

    In have one from the same maker with slightly thinner catch,
    probably a later version.
    Regards,

    Hi, as Adrian has stated, pre war badges like this one were made of "Tombak", a brass alloy. As the war progressed metal standards declined and badges eventually become made from zinc alloy with a bronze wash finish.

    Cheers, Ade.
