Default SP Firmin Motto

Hi All

I would be interested to see how many of us have this "Firmin" Motto in their collection?

Silver Plate (Looped E/W) NSN 8455-99-130-3056


I have an AA that has an earlier struck male die image (see blow). So what I am hoping to see is an SP with the same back image as this one below?

AA (Slider) NSN 8455-99-973-9382 Ptn No:18552


To see the full sequence, see here https://www.paoyeomanry.org.uk/Motto/Firmin1946AA.htm

Thanks Mac

1 = Firmin Motto Copy, looks well made? Whats the mark inside the skull?

2 = LB&BCo Motto, is that plated or solid?

3 = JRGaunt/London. Is that plated Mac or is it hallmarked? Its looks like it has the AA loops?

... I dont doubt its silver Mac..... but thats a bit of an odd mark? the Birmingham mark stopped in 1974 and the shape of the date letter is not one I am seeing in the Birmingham lists? The Makers mark is a bit blurred as well? Must be an "artisan" piece?
