2.5 cm badge for a couple of quid

I just thought I'd show you one of the more affordable little items I spotted on Ebay; this one for just a couple of quid so well within my pocket money limit!

Small badge of Chester


The photograph is larger than the actual size which is 2.5cm. These are the old arms of Chester.

The badge itself has no indication as to manufacture or date.

 Such a short retirement.
