Default Crown Imperial ?

I was tidying & found some Crown Imperial journals, does the society still exist ?
The Indian Military Historical Society winds up at the end of 2020, such a pity.

I take it that you saw that it is going to be incorporated to the Military Historical Society.

Crown Imperial was the journal of The Crown Imperial Society which was set up in 1974 by a small group of collectors who were seeking firm legal action to be taken against the makers and sellers of “restrikes, reproductions and fakes”.

Some 46 years later ..............?

Far too late in the day, the damage had already been done.

16 yrs gone! Doesn't time fly, wasn't much chance of getting prosecutions when it was generally the big badge firms doing them all over again.
