Early Imperial Crown Matched Brass Collar Badge Universal Pattern as worn by many Regiments of Foot, 1872 - 1878 only
Scarce brass collar badge with an original single horizontal loop to reverse, as issued. In very good condition with sharp detail.
Now, to dispel a myth, these may well have been worn by the 11th ( Devonshire Regiment), but they were generic issue to most regiments without a special device, such as fusilier regiments which were authorised to wear grenades, or light infantry regiments who were authorised to wear bugles, or other special devices approved at the time. There were other special devices, such as the 1st Regiment ( Royal Scots) who were authorised in 1872 to wear a collar badge in the form of a thistle.
In an attempt to list the units who may have worn this generic pattern of collars in the early 1870s (typically 1872 - 1878), I have compiled the following list from Churchill:
2nd ( Queen's )
3rd ( Buffs )
11th (North Devon )
12th ( East Suffolk )
14th ( West Yorkshire )
19th (Green Howards ), replaced in 1875 with a different pattern crown (Churchill 559) - see item below
29th ( Worcestershire )
35th ( Royal Sussex )
39th (Dorsetshire )
42nd ( Black Watch )
44th ( East Essex )
45th ( Sherwood Foresters )
48th ( Northamptonshire )
53rd ( King's Shropshire Light Infantry )
62nd ( Wiltshire )
64th ( North Staffordshire )
83rd ( County of Dublin / RIR / RUR )
Churchill page 1 and No 333 refers.
The final photo compares the generic pattern for sale here with the special 19th Foot (Green Howards) pattern on the left, for sale below.
