Remembered Today:

Help identifying metal insignia


Recommended Posts

I found these items in a collection of WW1 buttons and insignia, mostly from Canada, Great Britiain, Germany and Czechoslovakia.

They are made of brass, and resemble a maple leaf or a grape leaf. Thee is a small attachment piece at the bottom of the back of each one (as seen on the smaller one to the left, which is face down). They are almost the same, but sizes are different. The larger one is 3 1/4" tall by 3 1/4" wide. The smaller one is 2 3/4 by 2 3/4".

I have no idea what they are or what they are for. Can anyone help me?

Unfortunately, I personally do not think that these are military in origin and their size make them a little large to be sweet heart brooches. The small socket mount looks like they have come off a stand of some description. Most British/Commonwealth military badges had either a slider; loops or occasionally pin brooch mounts.
