Default Yet Another ‘Lovely’ Badge

The ‘Ron Collection’ sadly still appears to be going strong. Today I noticed this ‘Lovely’ badge...

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/373572556...08d2%7Ciid%3A1

Lovely perhaps to like-minded fantasists or Frankenstein enthusiasts.

The badge is of course total fantasy made from a Grenadier Guards grenade, Lancashire Fusiliers scroll and Gloucestershire Regiment back badge attached.

Had I known the extent of the collection when the first of these mutants appeared I’d have kept a list since I’ve no doubt some will resurface on here with new members/collectors enquiring about their very rare and unrecorded badge.

GG, LF and what looks like the addition of a Gloucesters/Rifles back badge.

Cool Lovely badges!

Strange how absolute fantasy items starting at £15.00 get bids and good feedback while original badges starting at £4.99 don't sell.
