I'm hoping that someone would be so kind as to send me a photo of the decal on the rear mudguard of a 1960's era Phillips English 3-speed.
same as the headtube and seat tube
this is the best shot I have of the rear fender.
it's the same sticker as this
and the same image as this
the headbadge says birmingham (original phillips locale) the stickers say Nottingham (raleigh land) these bikes were '61s so they had a mis-match

This badge was on the rear fender of a 1959 Phillips 3-speed. That's before Raleigh took over the company:

And here's my version on a Christmas holiday restoration, a 1955 Phillips ladys sports tourer.
The mudguard/fender is shaped to accept the badge.
Bit faded, indistinct perhaps and not overpainted, but the genuine article.
More pics of the bicycle here:
Scroll down a bit on the page to bypass the other mesmerising English lightweights....:thumb:
