Hi Jack

Im no expert on these things but, a it looks odd and b it has a Queen Vic Crown and the AFC didn't exist in Pre Fed days so Id say its a bogus one.

Regards

Phil.

I would say contempory home made sweetheart badge , looking at the pin , and aging etc using what was laying around . Not an official item more a curio.
Crown is earlier as stated.
Regards
Steve
