OR South African Corps of Signals Cap Badge 1939 – 1945. Struck in steel with Tricolour backing. It has two loop fixings top & bottom. Some fine surface rust has caused dis-colouring to the backing.
Left are a pair of struck steel collars in better condition than the above cap badge. As above the die struck steel variant is, I assume, an economy version.
To check if a badge is steel it will be attracted and stick to a magnet where brass and bronze will not.
