Trevor would be your man. I can say it looks 1800's era. The VR would most likely mean Victoria Regina. Looks like a ships flag but could be an ordinary flag. Haven't seen any military issued buttons in that design so most likely civilian. Nice find.

Re: cleaning....can you tell me what sort of metal it may be made of?

It may be able to be "electro-cleaned"....

If not frangible, it may be able to be just polished with Silvo (less abrasive) or Brasso (if of 'brass' origin)...

If you have an ultrasonic?....

imo....it appears to have a very good strike still, so as a relic, i'm inclined to leave as is..if you sell it, ask the buyer which they prefer, and charge for the time to change it if required. tongue
