Vintage - Size Medium - French Badge - Journee rouennaise

£70.00

Product description

This vintage badge of French origin is a bit of a mystery!
It features the coat of arms of the city of Rouen in the North West of France surrounded by foliage of oak and holly, possibly in silver. On the reverse of the badge the following is inscribed but not very discernible: Journée rouennaise, 10 8 BRE (??) 915 or is it 1915?
Might have been a badge sold during WW1 for fund raising. Other such days were, for example, Journée du Poilu or Journée des orphelins de la guerre. But cannot confirm the story!

Length of badge: 1.25 inch / 3 cm
Width of badge: 1.4 inch / 4 cm

Whatever it might be, it is a unique opportunity to acquire an exceptional piece of memorabilia, ideal for any collector!
