New Zealand NZ Regiment Cap Badge - Large Type with Kings Crown. - M & K Ltd
A large, gilt brass cap badge to the New Zealand Regiment.
Formed in 1947, as part of the Infantry Corps, this is the larger gilt brass, kings crowned version.
Light wear to detail, but please note that the badge has been lacquered, which has preserved the gilt finish beneath, but the lacquer has yellowed with age, turning the badge a golden brown in colour.
To back are two copper looped lugs, firm and original.
Maker marked to base back in raised letters to "M & K Ltd, Wgtn, N.Z.", or Mayer and Kean limited, Wellington, New Zealand.
