99th (Duke of Edinburgh’s) Regt. of Foot. Officer’s gilt 25mm. 1874-1881


A fine example of the scarcer version of the 99th Duke of Edinburgh’s (Lanarkshire) Regiment of Foot. This is the 25nn officer’s gilt version of the button which replaced the simpler pattern in use from 1855 until 1874 and was only worn for seven years before the regiment became the 2nd Bn. The Wiltshire Regiment. This pattern has the regiment’s title on a scroll beneath the crown. The backmark is JENNENS & Co. LONDON and the button retains virtually full original gilt finish.  jun12/3
