Victorian Suffolk Regiment Forage Cap Badges Regular and Militia Battalions

These are a real oddity, the Other Ranks HPC device die struck in both brass and white metal with two original lugs to the reverse. From slightly different dies. They are not collar badges as far as I can determine (not listed in Churchill) so I can only presume they are NCO issue for wear in the forage service cap, regular and militia battalions respectively. These show no sign of having been removed from the Helmet Plate Centre, the lugs are original and not in place of any other fittings. Circa 2.5cm wide and 2.4cm tall. Any information welcome. I am selling these together as they make an unusual set.

A stunning quality cross belt plate worn by an officer in the 44th regiment of foot, 1st battalion the Essex Regiment.

It is of all brass three-part construction, the badge is removable from its solid brass backing plate for cleaning. It has a wreath around the outside with two circular straps on the inside naming the regiments battle honours of; Salamanca. Bladensburg. Peninsula. Ava. Waterloo and Badajoz. Above all this is Queen Victoria’s crown and below the Egyptian Sphinx.
As all the battle orders are pre the Crimean war, dating it to 1831 - 1855.

The condition is very good, the detailing on the individual pieces are crisp and clean. There is just a small amount of wear to the very high points on the crown and the Sphinx. One corner of the backing plate is slightly bent, but this is minimal and does not affect its display. No repairs or restoration anywhere on this plate.
