Hi Bill and Larry,

Sorry totally forgot about this one but just now pulled the camera out for some photos (see attached).

And will send you a high res image Larry in due course.

The badge appears to have been worn and polished. The back is a little more tarnished that the photo shows (a trick of the light). And the high areas of the front are a little more polished than the rest, which leads me to thinking it was worn and polished. Nevertheless a lovely badge.

Can't see any makers name but 'sterling' is stamped vertically in the center.

Cheers, Roy.
