Anyone know the likely provenance of this?

I think it's pretty safe to say it's probably not one of the original sets. wink

I believe the original sets from AML cost something like GBP3k (ouch) so these aren’t original

But there was a guy on here who got someone to make him some copies. Probably fine for own use but I suspect in breach of copyright if sold (can probably search for thread on here).

So guessing it’s him or someone who’s done something similar.

"Badges are approx 5cm across"

think that answers it.

I can't believe what they're currently bid up to.

Madness.

It’s at a crazy price, just look at the reverse side of the badge, it’s not the finish of the originals. The ASTON MARTIN typeface doesn’t look right. The auction ends in 15 mins, where will it all end, in tears I would guess.

Perhaps a couple of bidders think they’re original? Seller mustn’t be able to believe his luck - cue likely flood of these on eBay!

Badgers are much bigger than that?
