Here's a find from Raleigh...a nice matched pair of H&H Imperial Marked M37 emblems with clutchbacks. The clutches are mismatched, however these officer clutchback emblems don't come along too often, and ever less often in matched pairs. Still has a nice patina, and for 50 bucks, I couldn't complain.

Great find, with the dual hallmark, dates them to the 42/43 period after-which H&H did away with the dual use. Perfect for period tunic use. BTW does the single left collar clutch have a patent number on it.

are we sure they fully did away with the Imperial mark? Because I'd find it odd these came out that early into the war...I had thought that as well, and this pair threw a wrench in my thoughs...

patent number 2308424 and marked sterling
