    Is that a nut found on the excellent badges??? They come in a wide variety and are often similar to the guards badges which I know better, but this one I thought was for other badges

    These are found on both excellence badges and Guards badges and other badges as well. There's a wide variety of nuts indeed. Also one should not forget, it was war. These badges were worn in the field, at all times. Badges got damaged, nuts got lost and replaced. Therefor, as stated in the openingpost an Excellence badge with a silver nut as usually found on Red Stars f.e. also happened. Soldiers were inventive and used whatever they could get their hands on. That said, if it was mine, I wouldn't replace the silver nut but keep it as is.

    That is fantastic Dom. A perfect example of the fact that whatever a soldier could get their hands on they would use!
