Linaker & Dine P73-74 refer. Langridge (1959) shows a much deeper backing cloth than suggested by Linaker and Dine, and claims it was supplied 'cut to shape'.
Final photo shows a comparison with the Royal Scots Greys Cap Badge listed above for sale. The two are often confused.

The rare 1st pattern arm badge, hollow backed construction with two original loops to the reverse. Marker's mark partly obscured but appears to be R&W. Birmingham Assaye hallmarks and Letter P for 1889 (not the 1914 style of "P"). The tail separately cast and attached by the manufacturer, or a professional repair.
To quote from Linaker and Dine "One of the three unhallmarked Rearing Horse silver badges known to exist is shown in plate 19.2. No hallmarked badges have been traced as yet but the survival of the unhallmarked badges may be attributed to their not being accounted for as strictly as the later hallmarked issued badges. Sealed pattern approved in 1884. Rare.
