I've just picked this ARP badge up and was told that the fact that it's made in brass indicates it's a 1938 pattern.

Does that sound right?

It's the same size as the more usual...

Hi Terry,

It's basically a marketing thing. The one with the golf ball is usually left at golf clubs for people to buy, the rugby balls are left at rugby clubs.

RM Shoulder Title

Hi All,

I've just picked this up and was wondering about the lettering being in blue thread, is that correct, I've only seen them with black thread.

Thanks a lot,

RM Cash Name Tape

Hi All,

I've just bought this and from what I've read on the forum I think it's ok, it is 17mm which seems to be a key factor but I'd appreciate some thoughts.

Thanks a lot,
