Always nice to see the "O" mark!!!
I think at one time, it was thought of as a makers mark, but now it is considered more of a guide mark for a worker, applying a catch, or hinge or whatever.
Among the 57 makers, I think only S&L's pieces usually have them, so although not a makers mark as such, it is usually a good guide to help identify an S&L made or derived piece!!

Great information
I think there’s interesting connections between war time manufacturing and post war manufacturing crossing over.
I have been looking at pin scrapes again today in particular the iron cross for sale on estand

Kind regards Chay

That all sounds very familiar.

I especially like that rider badge. Always had a weak for them. I have to check mine when I get home again. I can't remember the makers name is there.

Did you manage to take a look at your rider badge?

Kind regards Chay

Nice example Nigel,
I particularly like the massive makers mark,
Needle pin is great to see as well I wonder what system they used for attaching the little tube to the pin?

Kind regards Chay
