No hallmark but I guess that it may date about 1910 as other silver and military bits here do.
Army Service Corps?
Any thoughts? :Thinking:

I'm a little dubious about it being from a hat badge simply because it is so thin. It wouldn't last very long at all. More likely a mount from a decorative object like a cigar box. The crown dates it to late Victorian but no reason that it shouldn't have still been knocking around a bit later. :thumbsup:

Yep I’m not sure exactly what the cypher is from, just the general unit. Looks like they did exist later on, as I found this image too that says 1901-1914.
