Hello Friends,

Would anybody have a source for the large sphinx and 24 numerals for
the forage cap? (ZULU war period) I can get an original but at $225.00, it's a bit out of my
price range.
Thats all i need to complete my kit.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mikey,

The really McCoys were actually embroided with silver and gilt wire-like thread.

The reproduction brass ones appear on e-Bay quite often.

There was a source in Pakistan that produced a poor embroided one, but I haven't seen one on e-Bay for a while.

John,
let me know if you see it again, i just tried a ebay search but couldn't come close unless I'm not looking in the right place.
I typed, British forage cap badge, 24th regiment of foot, spinxe cap badge
with no luck.
