I dont know, but I recall it had an extremely high price and sold very quickly, so someone else thinks it is.

I don't believe it was an official issue item. My guess is that if it was worn by the AFC, it may have been a privately purchased item by an individual.

As a AFC collector of 35yrs I have never seen one of these before.It looks like a British WW1 slip on title.White writing for ww1 and black writing for 1930's and ww2 . Never seen one for the AFC though but have seen them for the RFC but I do have some doubts I would be doing some research first .
