    Hi Francie,

    I'm not the worlds best judge, and I would be happy to be shot down in flames, but it doesn't look too good to me, but for your sake I do hope I am wrong

    Have a look at this site; Untitled Document and compare yours with these known examples.

    Cheers,

    Grant

    Not too clever at all,sorry. You can see a mis-casting on the sub from the obverse & some sort of flaw to the flag from the reverse. Then there's the pin,but pin etc could always be just a replacement. Stewy S

    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    its very difficult to buy a badge without reference book , scale , caliper , you see in military show a good badge , you have a doubt , you buy , and you return in home , you take a book , and you see its a fake

    hi francie.. agree with the above . not looking good at this stage .it may be of help to provide a couple of pics ,flat obverse and reverse ,instead of pics of the award on the stand. eagles head is distorted or it may be the angle . in my opinion this is a cast copy award with a replaced pin to help it seem more original ,ie salty.......paul
