Having been unimpressed with the oversized pressed brass regimental numbers commonly on sale and sold as 'field made', usually in the far east! We decided to offer these much more accurate and less 'clunky' yellow metal regimental numbers in yellow metal. Yellow Metal is a form of brass containing about 60 parts copper and 40 parts zinc.
They are 14mm tall which is just under 5/8th of inch and we have copied these from an original. They were made in silver and brass coloured and these are the brass version. They were originally intended for officers but were widely used across all ranks.
So if you want your kepi or bummer to have subtle and accurate regimental numbers these are the ones to get. Available in aged or new condition!
