    3rd (Dundee Highland) VB Black Watch Victorian officer's feather bonnet badge.
    A fine and rare die-struck silver example. Sphinx resting on a blank tablet.
    Two long silver loops to the reverse, the letter 'S' hand engraved behind the plinth?
    Ex Hugh King collection.

    Perth Highland Volunteers Officer's pouch belt plate circa 1875-1880.
    A fine scarce die-cast three part silvered example. Crowned Star of the Order of the Thistle, to the centre a thistle mounted on a mirror finished dome within a strap inscribed "Perth Highland Voluntrs" in burnished letters. Four long screw posts to the reverse.
    Ex Hugh King collection.

    Pipers silver plated brooch large size 92mm unsure of date perhaps 1920s-30s.
    Just found this photo of 2BW India 1905 looks quite a good match.

    Cast brass and gilt officer's bonnet badge with three long copper lugs to the reverse.
    Looks a bit too distressed for my liking, would put this down as a reproduction.

    Ron,

    There is a Robert Scott S/17089. His MIC is attached. Even if this is him, there is little to be learned.

    Steel master die for 1 inch diameter pre 1936 button. Not marked but probably from the J.Gaunt factory.
