Old 1895 pattern stock made new again with applying the 1902 pattern Field Artillery wheel in the center.
More akin to the 1895 pattern in shape, is this 1902-05 field artillery officer’s collar insignia, with a less stubby type crossed cannons. Made of heavy stamped brass with false embroidery and an applied gilt brass/ red enameled wheel. Obviously with the addition of the wheel, it is most likely that the manufacturer used old pattern stock. Some varieties of the 1895 pattern used this applied center piece for regimental numerals. The subdued or bronze finish was worn on the field service uniform with sew-on loops.
Fine- excellent condition with minute wear.
A very scarce insignia.
From the Robert Borrell Artillery Collection.
