    Sorry Zepp,

    Unfortunately this is a well known fantasy badge.

    For reference, they never produced grade 1 badges, although there are some genuine solid backed unknown maker badges that have been tool stamped "JFS 42". So, whilst a good badge, the markings are bogus and kill it's originality and hence, value.

    As Ned says, a fantasy award.Although JFS were well known for their numbered ASA's. Makes me wonder why either they never won the contract for the ordinary ASA or never fancied it. Stewy

    As much as I love Ned, I am not going camping with him, his wit is to sharp!!! As for the badge I agree that it is a poor fantasy piece. Leon.

    Yes, and after the last time we shared a tent and you claimed you thought your hands were between two pillows when I awoke screaming blue murder, was enough to put me off camping for life!
