Default silver sweetheart badge

i have come accros a silver sweetheart badge today, which i found between two floor boards. i have spent the evening trying to id it through many searches on the net but cannot find an exact match, many similar but none the same. http://www.ww2wings.com/wings/britai...heart102.shtml is the closet i can find, but on the one i found the R and F letters are the same size as the A. the only markings on the rear are, on the left wing BLB9 and on the right wing SILVER. i can upload a picture if required but was just curious if anybody knew what the markings could tell me.
many thanks m.sullivan

There are many, many examples of different sweetheart brooches due to
them being made by individual jewellers all over this country - and abroad.
i.e. there is no standard style. It is also very unlikely - unless you get hold
of one of the famous makers such as Garrards, that the person/company
who made this, is actually still around....
Also, 'BLB9' doesn't actually make sense as a name, more of a style or
type or catalog number. It might be worthwhile posting a picture of just
these letters.
