WW1 Badge restrikes

Postby AdamCee » Thu Sep 20, 2012 10:28 am

Can anyone out there recommend a decent badgemaker? Our membership is growing faster than originals become available-and, given that some of these badges are almost 100 years old, feel that they should really be being looked after rather than being worn and transported around the country.

Richard is good at small quantity brass moulding, with reasonable rates, plus he is a reenactor so knows the ropes, charges about £40 to make the mould then costs vary for the badge made it is good if you have an original one though, the bigger the run the cheaper the badges become. of course once he has the mould made he can reuse it on request.
