    I always though L/54 stamps were in an arched box under the catch. I may be wrong

    Hello Pablo
    I have also seen these badges marked L54 (no slash) in a straight incused box under the catch. I am not sure about
    the one you show as the maker mark deviates considerably both in font & positioning.

    Hello Dave
    Your badge is fine. The silver badge shown should have the maker mark either in an arched box marked L/54, as Nick suggested, with the slash being
    the central part of the arch , or marked L54 with no slash in a straight box. Both marks should be under the catch.
    The badge Pablo shows looks suspiciously like a L/53 Hymmen & Co with the positioning of its raised maker mark & hardware, the
    pin concealing the digit in question.

    Regards

    I contacted the seller and the badge is actually an L/53.

    Hi Pablo
    I had a feeling it might have been.

    Hello there,

    An original L/53 produced badge you have there!
