The 1960's Kings ones rather than the Liverpool UOTC one? - Buywyze has an OTC one on sale for 45

There was an issue in 1963 (CB 3083) which was probably for the 5th Bn
20302/1971 and again 20302/1993 both I think for LUOTC and both unseeded1971



Thanks I saw the 45 and left it! (they can't be that dear can it!?)

Firmin and Sons is from the 90s ,not many badges with this mark. Have you seen an example with this mark ?

Firmin London or Firmin.London theres around 30 years difference in those two ?

Unseeded I have FIRMIN LONDON and FIRMIN & SONS also DOWLER BIRMINGHAM

An oddity is an all silver anodised seeded J.R.GAUNT LONDON

That's interesting Tim,I have that mark on a few badges that went in 2007. So Firmin must have used this mark for a few years.
