Default AAC badge

Hi all,

Planning to sell the AAC badge below. But no idea how rare or common it is and is it a good one?

Any help would be great.

Thanks

Oh no. Nothing to do so. Thank you for your prompt reply.

Truly awful, never mind, plenty of original examples can be had for very little, but, nothing whatsoever to do with either the Royal Flying Corps or Royal Air Force.

Sadly as already stated a duffer, these never came on a slider, never had the dreaded Gaunt.London mark and of course never had the leaf over feather on the left wing
