Rare silver bookmakers badge.

Walter Beresford was the 1st president of the Bookmakers Protection Association.

The association was set up to counter the Birmingham gangs, made famous in the BBC production Peaky Blinders.

Research has shown that these can be found in base metal, but I have not found another one which is made in solid silver.

The item is in excellent condition.
