Looks like a good Silver to me...I really like the sharp, clear details on this badge!
looks ok to me too.
It's good F&R 'Low Maker Mark' (type 4.2.1), the earliest badge they made and is dated to the mid war period. It's hard to say exactly what grade it is as the hardware was often bronze coloured on the silver PAB's. The obverse may show a faint bronze hue, but it all boils down to the camera exposure and lighting, wait till you get it in hand, then you'll see!! Very nice overall condition too, you've chosen well.

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
