Lot 26: R.A.C. Full Member's Badge. A very rare, circa 1908, type No 1 badge, numbered B526, being the dashboard-mounted type with a flat rectangle dais and retaining its built-in angled mounting bracket, which was frequently cut off, the centre with a profile of the club's royal patron, Edward VII, with a rectangular union flag verso, within a hollow-cast spoked wheel supported by the god Mercury with correct split wings, topped by the King's crown, the coloured enamels are sound, and the badge possesses a delightful patina, a delight, 17cm high.
