Thanks Simon,

The design which appears to incorporate a 'v' centrally has me a little perplexed.

I'm still looking on line for comparisons but nothing definitive as yet.

Well I'm guessing with the lack of a single response that no one actually has any trade badge catalogues, so I'm thinking they must be rather rare.

Perhaps if folks could keep their eyes open and...
