Description
Palestine/Yishuv: Hat badge of the 1st Judean Battalion in brass, 1920; not maker-marked; size: 3.55 x 5.05cm; weight: 9.35g. This is the design with the flat-sided base of the 'Menorah' (candelabra); and the upper half of it, with the branches, is also flat (normally this section is more curved) - as the weights and sizes of these badges vary, this may be a variation in the die used. Bears the Hebrew word "Kadima" ('forward') on the scroll at the base. Nice toned piece with light oxidation; some grains of dirt(?) in the incuse details on the reverse.
