Default 17/21 Modern Gaunt Motto

Hi All

Here is a "factory" nickel blank that made the late unmarked long slider chromed motto.

I admire your mastery of the subject of 17 L and successor units insignia.

Correction to my last :-

On receipt of the Motto it is actually white metal with a brass slider. SO..... Gaunt did make one towards the end.... the Gaunt AA motto after (or just before) this would have been the last one marked with "J.R.GAUNT LONDON LTD"



There was a blackened nickel plate version, a chromed version and a white metal with brass slider (all with a long unmarked slider).

Go to the bottom of the page to see them :- https://www.paoyeomanry.org.uk/Motto/Gaunt4.htm

....further :-

Years ago I spotted this late Cold War Gaunt Motto that looks tantalisingly like a white metal with a short brass slider? The slider does look brass magnified in Photoshop ..... but .... this could be a dirty chrome? I never saw the back image of this motto but I suspect it is the late type as above.

So what I am saying is .... there could be a short slider version of the above (possibly marked "J.R.GAUNT B'HAM").

** If you have one (white metal with a short brass slider) ... marked or unmarked.... I would love to see a "front and back" image of it.
