Ron
Another excellent piece. I notice the "ET" spelling, the different construction, and different QVC this time. How many variations on this theme were there ? Regards Jeff

Hi Jeff, I guess as many versions as there are makers. Will post another version tomorrow.
Ron.

His kirby grip replacement cotter pin holds the overlay tight even though only passing through the top lug. High degree of polish wear.

Ron as always great badges. The lacquer staining; do you think that was added by a collector fairly recently (post WWII) or back in time, or in-service? Seen a few badges that have been lacquered.
