Thank you so much for all the details.  Well even though this one does not date to frontier times, it still does in my story and I really like it.  It is a beautiful little pin.  Took a pic of mine:



That's the post 1954 version.  The Queen's crown has the dip on the top center and the King's crown has a rounded top . Judging by the size of the button hole in comparison, it looks like what we call a collar dog as opposed to a lapel pin.  They have three styles of lapel pins that I am aware of, one is a member on a horse (same one that is on Sgt Klondikes business card) plus a small replica of their police badge along with their shoulder patch all in lapel pin size.  The collar dogs are worn on the lapels of the tunic or on the collar of the red serge tunic as per Sgt Klondikes photos.

Gotcha.  I was trying to figure out what you were calling a button hole, it is actually just a seam that shows up in the pic, but what shows up is about the size of a button hole  Smiley .  The pin is 1.26" tall.

Thanks again for all the detail!

BTW, I know nothing more about Mounties than from the movies and such, but I must say to Sgt. Klondike that everything you are putting together looks outstanding!

One last thing, I was happy to see on the back that it is made in Canada, not China  Grin

Finally had time today to finish the gun cart.   Added the wooden boxes, steel runners and long gun rack.   It was a fun project, but I'm glad it's finished.

Very nice, Sarge!  How does it slide with the weight on it?  It doesn't look like you added wheels to the runners.

Now all you need is that NWMP carbine!

Thanks,  It has a tad more resistance, but not enough to make it uncomfortable to pull.   I'll field test it a few times, then decide about the wheels.

A very neat rig there Sgt Klondike. I like it a lot but I see wheels in your future. I was wondering how you planned to stow your long guns on it. My only issue (and with not being currently active in SASS, NCOWS or GAF officially run matches) would be your closed double. The last that I knew long gun actions had to be open except when preparing to shoot or shooting. In a guncart or carrying actions were to be open. Now I might be wrong and I'm sure that others will chime in if I am. Looks real good. Hopefully I wil have my uniform together soon.

Thanks, Ed!   The rifle actions and coach gun can open on the cart.  I just didn't open them for the photo.   Did you take your Red Serge to the seamstress this week?

My first choice  cleaners/seamstress wouldn't do my button holes but I found another who might. I will carry it to her later this week. She can do the sleeve insignia though. She was knee deep in Marine dress uniforms for the upcoming balls this month.

This sort of memorabilia turns up at gun shows on a regular basis. My ex-wife was a civilian employee of the rcmp for years and had a lot of it she gave away as gifts.
