    Hi Mate,

    Hard to say on the strength of these pic's. These particular F&R badges are heavily faked to a good standard in many cases so straight on focussed shots of the entire badge front and rear clearly showing the hardware details are required to come to a definitive answer as these pictures aren't good enough to do that.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks for reply Ned. I will take some more photos to include the whole badge front and back.

    Hinge and catch need to be included in the photos as well.

    Hardware: The sheet metal hinge should have an oval base, and the catch should be a '?' shape sitting on a small round base. As far as I know there should be no variations on this set up.

    Hi elof,

    Well no problems there, it's a good textbook example! Being semi hollow it's also the hardest one to find by F&R and is considered rather uncommon, so all in all a great result. Thanks for showing it.

    Regards, Ned.
