Vintage Institute Of Advanced Motorists Green Motorcyclist Badge
This is a rather nice, and quite scarce, Vintage Institute Of Advanced Motorists Green Motorcyclist Badge in green and white. It dates to the 1950s/60s.
The badge was issued to members of the UK Institute Of Advanced Motorists for Motorcyclists meeting their exacting driving standards. The equivalent car drivers badge is red on white.
It is made from chrome and is quite hard to find. This one was issued to M. Hostekens, 121092.
This one is in fair cosmetic condition with slight loss of paint. It has surface scratches and blemishes commensurate with age and use.
An incredibly rare item for automobilia/ car badge collectors!
