Hi,

What do you think of these crests of the 16th Infantry Regiment, Big red One division. They are marked on the back JR Gaunt New York Made in England and one worn around the screw JR Gaunt London. They were found together.

Is it really an English production and are they scarce?

 

Thanks

 

Richard

Here is a variety of J.R. Gaunt hallmarks. Your pair is fine.

Co-incidentally, another member posted this 16th Infantry liner on the forum just yesterday.
