Could use some help with this id, the badge has king George on it but is to damaged to see if its the 111 or the fifth. I found it with the other stuff.

Based on the King's beard and mustache, I'd say George V. Commemorating his coronation in 1911.

Maybe one of the Brits will chime in to confirm.

Thanks, i actually came to that conclusion. Its interisting because the badge came from a murder victium we found while metal detecting in 2006 He was shot in the head and placed against a rock wall, who ever killed him cut off his finger which has a gold ring on it. When we found the ring we thought it was just a root growing through it because there was nothing else, i tossed it asaid but when we dug deepper I realized we found a body i now think it was a finger we tossed asaid. just so you guys know i took the cops to the site, but they could not see the body and just said i was void of reality and was seeing things. long story.
