New Zealand NZ Rifle Volunteers 24mm Button - 1895 to 1911
A gilt brass 24mm button to the New Zealand Rifle Volunteers.
Worn post 1895, when all Volunteer units were instructed to adopt brass insignia and buttons.
Button is in great condition, with just light wear to front and a slight ding on the "V" in Volunteers. There is also some old polish in the detail to front, which should clean.
To back, fixed shank is in good order and is maker marked to the New Zealand clothing and uniform manufacturer of "Hallenstein Brothers".
