Default WANTED: TOYE, KENNING & SPENCER

I am currently looking for and wanting to purchase any Anodised Aluminium badges with the early 1990s makers mark of:

TOYE, KENNING
& SPENCER LTD

NB: As shown, over two lines.

I already have RA, RE, RAOC, RAMC and ACC but I am not 100% sure of which other badges came with this mark in this format.

If you have any you can spare please pm me and we can come to an agreement over price.

Also if you have any badge with the marking that is not listed above please let me know so that I can add it to my 'wants' list. Photographs appreciated.

Thanks for looking, stay safe and I look forward to your replies.

Steve

Have funnily enough been looking at a SAS badge yesterday with this makers Mark, not in any way mint in a used state! Will add some picture Friday if you wish and can check my others.
All the best Billy

Billy, I would love to see that one. Quite a while ago I noticed an A/A SAS badge on ebay being sold by 'UK Soldier' - a dealer from Germany. It was also Toye, Kenning & Spencer but looked 'new' as in never issued. The makers mark was the more modern TOYE, KENNING & SPENCER, in a single line along the length of the slider. Look forward to seeing your photo and thanks for checking your other badges. much appreciated. Steve

Jerry,

Thanks for your response.
I have never seen a Toye, Kenning & Spencer London mark. In addition this mark is not shown in Anodised Aluminium The 'No Bull' cap badge, book by Chris Marsh.

The only marks I am aware of are

a. TKS - capitals in an enclosed box.
b. TOYE KENNING & SPENCER - in a single line (still being used today)
c. TOYE, KENNING & SPENCER Ltd - on two lines - one above the other along the slider

there are two others shown in Chris's book but the above are the only ones I have or have seen.

I am mainly looking for the old mark which is 'c' above

any photo's you have would be appreciated and if you don't want to put them up here then send me a pm and I will let you know my private email.

Thanks very much for your response
Steve

Toye Kenning and Spencer Mark's x6 variations on anodised alluminium badges as attached.

Additionally, the 'TOYE KENNING & SPENCER LTD' mark over two lines ( the earliest mark I believe), I have:-

RHA
RA - 2nd pattern beret badge
Royal Engineers
RAMC
Intelligence Corps
RAOC
Army Catering Corps (2nd pattern)
SAS Regt
Worcs & Sherwood Foresters
Welsh Guards
Exeter University OTC

This is by no means comprehensive and I would suspect there may well be one or two more 'Corps' with this mark. Be surprised if there isn't REME.

Regards all

Bess

Bess,

Excellent. Two marks there that I have not seen. Thanks for the photo's.

Looks like I have a long way to go but at least I am developing an idea of what is out there and what I need to find.

I would have put up a photo of the badges I have but have no idea how to do it. Last time I tried I got confused by a message that came up and had to give up - any advice would be appreciated. Either here or you have my private email. Thanks again

Steve

There are quite a few TKS Toye Kenning & Spencer AA cap badges on eBay right now. Including Welsh Guards, Army Air Corps, RAMC, RLC and others.

Here's a link to one...

All the best to all Lockdowners.

Thanks William

I check ebay on a regular basis to look out for my requirements.
That particular badge is 'Brand New' which tells me it has the single line makers mark.

My quest at the moment is for the early makers mark which is on the slider over two lines

TOYE, KENNING
& SPENCER Ltd

but thanks for your input. Always good to get a response to a post.

Thanks once again and stay safe.
