More photos of the item 59648 listed below. I found these on the internet somewhere and it shows a similar sabretache badge fitted to its case and this one is complete. It is a huge item and worthy of repair.
Die struck white metal White Horse of Hanover as worn on the reverse of the full dress busby (see close up of Harry Payne postcard - listed for sale elsewhere). Two original and long staple style brass loops to the reverse, which have been nipped together. Circa 59mm wide and 40mm tall. Not to be confused with the NCO arm badge of the 5th Dragoon Guards (see below). There is also an interesting comparison of the two badges in Linklater & Dine on pages 66 and 67.

Three original dark toned lugs and central expansion hole behind crown. Worn from 1898 to 1903 from when the regiment adopted cross lances as their main motif. No damage to applied coronet which is something to watch out for on this pattern. In very good condition.
