New Zealand WW1 6th (Manawatu) Mounted Rifles Collar Badge - Cast brass
A scarce, middle eastern made collar badge to the WW1 New Zealand 6th (Manawatu) Mounted Rifles.
Slight wear to darkened finish to front, with traces of old polish to detail.
To back are two looped lugs, firm and original.
Badge has been cast from a original Gaunt plaqued badge, and the imprint of this is still to back of crown.
Due to supply issues, local Egyptian manufacturers made badges for the NZMR during WW1.
