The First Speedwell Badge.


This is a very, very rare example of the original Speedwell badge that was designed by John Sprinzel.  Engraved brass, which was then enamelled & plated. Seen on early Sprites & A30s & 35s particularly.

Early badge fitted to A35 Rocker Cover, in period.




Etched Speedwell Badge.


Just to prove that you learn something new every day I have recently come across this Speedwell badge that I have never seen the likes of before. It measures approximately 2" x 2" and is plated etched brass, it fixes with two 4BA screw threads on the back and is finished in yellow and black enamel with silver plated highlights. I am sure that this is correct but would love to hear any further info.

      





Cast Speedwell Badges.


There were two types of badge sold by Speedwell throughout the 60's, they were both identical apart from the fact that one had a black paint background and the other had a light matt yellow background (not unpainted as previously stated). (Part No: AC 175, Price £0, 7, 6)

Speedwell Rocker Cover Badges.


I have found two types of original Speedwell rocker cover badges. These differ greatly in detail from the reproductions sold regularly on ebay. The 3 pictured opposite are all originals, from the top these are 1) Very worn A Series, 2) Fairly normal wear B Series badge very similar, but NOT identical to the A Series, and finally 3) A new old stock original. Compare any of these to the ebay offerings and the differences are self evident. The most notable feature is that all 3 are etched, where as the ebay ones are simply printed.
