Just to see if I have understood right. If the makers mark has a "." between Gaunt and London, and measures approx 15mm, then its a restrike.

If thats right, then I have 2 more duds, Intell Corp(KC) and AAC(KC).

Thanks Alan

From what you said, can I assume that the ACC badges were lugs only?

Hi Mike,

Heres the links :-

The makers mark in approx 15mm, so I reckon its a dud.

cheers

Rich

I now know the J.R.GAUNT & SON LTD mark was definitely valid for 1916


1916 on war service

I see what you mean Mike and that may have been the case, but I'd have been happier with a photograph of the back of this thing with such a mark on it rather than on the package !

I did think of that... honest... and of course, no guarantee other gaunt marks weren't in use at the same time as well.

I would like to bring this thread alive as I'm unsure about the originality of a 11mm Gaunt London marked badge. It is not the exact same mark as seen on the Gaunt page: there were 2 major flaws on the stamp that was used on my badge and the full stop is not in the middle. I believed it to be a replica, but fellow collector just showed me an identical given to him by a veteran.
I'd appreciate you thoughts.

I met 4 DDay veterans in normandy last year - all were from the same Corps. One had a WW2 cap badge, one a collar badge, one a cast badge and one a post war a/a badge.

My point is that often the veterans are not original badges. That mark doe not look good to me. What is the badge?
