A Scarce Prince Rupert Machine Gun Regiment Cap Badge
A Scarce Prince Rupert Machine Gun Regiment Cap Badge - This rare Prince Rupert Cap Badge was acquired locally here in Burlington. It has not been in a collection. It has come directly from a Canadian Second War family whose relative gathered a few different badges during the war period. For the last 70 years, it was stored in a crawl space along with other Canadian, German, and British items; which will be offered on eMedals.com as well. The badge is made of bronze, and well marked BIRKS on the reverse. It does not have the silver overlay; there are discussions that there were a few badges that did not include this overlay, and other comments that argue that badges that don't exhibit this characteristic have lost it overtime. It is our opinion that this badge has lost its silver component due to connection points on the badge. 41 x 42mm. It is a stamped badge and has a slight bend in the left side. An extremely rare badge that remains in fine condition.
