68th ( 1st Bn DLI ) Light Infantry Other Ranks Glengarry Badge, 1874 - 1881

An original and very clean heavy die struck version of this original glengarry badge, as worn by the predecessors of the 1st Battalion Durham Light Infantry, the 68th Light Infantry Regiment. Two strong and original brass loops to the reverse (one larger and longer in the mouth of the bugle), and correctly positoned. A copper tone to it rather than a yellow gilding metal, but spot on nevertheless. Circa 5cm tall and 5.7cm wide. Very good condition and scarce.

Whilst pre-Territorial Glengarries have been profusely copied, an original example like this is hard to come by. Nor is it a turn of the century 'Fox' restrike.
