Motoring Badges

RAC Life Member's Badge.

One of the oldest and rarest RAC badges.  The very first RAC badges produced were in this style, made between 1907 and 1911.  This example is around 1909.

It is a large, imposing badge - over 7" tall.  Although not strictly a life member's badge, this is what they became known as.  There is no such thing as a true life member's badge.

It is a hollow cast brass construction.  This example has two extra holes drilled in its base, and has been shortened at sometime.
