Vintage Hallmarked Solid Silver Medal / Fob / Pendant for Mitcham Athletic Club (Hallmark 1938). This was made by Herbert Bushell & Son in Birmingham, I believe the hallmark is 1938, but it could be 1913 (unusually they are the same). Mitcham Athletic Club and Sutton & Cheam Harriers merged in 1985 to form Sutton & District Athletics Club. They have many international athletes.Their Latin motto which is also on the fob is Nil Desperandum, this translates to " Never Despair " or " do not despair". Mitcham is in the London Borough of Merton (formerly Surrey). This features the Mitcham Athletics Club motif. The FOB is a lovely Art Deco Geometric shape and is in excellent condition. A nice piece of Vintage Antique memorabilia in the form of an. Enamel Watch FOB / Medal. The silver and enamel are in nice condition with crisp readable Hallmarks.
This measures 35 millimetres including the loop. I have a large quantity of Silver and Enamel FOBs, Medals & Badges listed. There are Sporting medals including Cycling, Athletics, Football, Swimming, Table Tennis, Rugby, Cricket and even Tug O War, plus many others.
I also have many thathave a topographical local history interest, please take a look, or let me know what you are looking for.
