Default Gaunt 3 lug RAC

A very nice pick up today at a local fiar.

A JR Gaunt marked RAC officers cap/beret badge with three lugs N, E&W, not hallmarked or marked with a P or S for plated.

A thread on similar badges by Gaunt are all wartime HM silver.

A well made an attractive badge. Viewing from the front one would expect to see a P or S to the reverse. Nice find

Thanks Jack.

I also would expect it to have a S or P on the reverse.
