24th Foot, South Wales Borderers. ORs 25mm


24th Regt. of Foot, the South Wales Borderers. A good example of the  other ranks’ brass button as worn from 1855 to 1881. The backmark is E & Ws. PATENT. One of the most diffocult of the numbered buttons to find: I don’t know why, but when I was putting together a full collection of the 109 numbered buttons (admittedly largely before the age of the internet) this was the third to last which I found, the last two being the 60th and the 41st. may15/1  SOLD 5th August 2022
