Title Luckenbooth badge, Inverness hallmarks
Nationality Scottish
Period c 1880
Price £400.00

Maker marked PGW for Peter G Wilson (1866-1916) and INS for Inverness, this badge dates to approximately 1880, the construction detail of the hinge being the give-away here. Earlier in the century, Luckenbooth badges (sweetheart brooches) were normally one-third of the size of this (just over 7.5 cm from top to bottom).

Its condition is very good, with a little wear and distortion to the pin, as one would expect.

Something similar to this example was sold in 2004 in Bonhams Scotland for 423.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.
