a very nice pickup it is too.
Nice Friedrich Orth badge.
That is a very nice FO zinc award.
A good example of the FO variant with the "cast in" reverse fittings.
Nice to see a complete badge as the catch was prone to break off on many of these FO Fleet badges.
Overall a great looking badge with faded gilding on the obverse and reverse.The packet is an added plus.
In the issue envelope, no less! Nice find!

Excellent find...got to love the envelope
Great find, I can't say that I have ever personally come across an example of the "cast in catch" FO variant myself. Leon.
