Hi Mark

Just a thought, but if this is a sweetheart badge, they may have registered silver maker's mark even if this badge isn't silver.

Try Google under "British silver maker's marks" or somesuch. You may or may not find their mark but chances are that you will see a listing.

Can you post a photo of the mark and I'll have look for you?
