This is an odd one that I am working on, not Russell's usual badging. The cut-off text is "BUCKS" short for Buckinghamshire (where his shop was located in the 1960s-1970s), which dates it to before Buckinghamshire was annexed into Berkeshire.

Aaron, those pictures are out of focus and are not head-on.

Thanks Tom - I'll try and take better photos at some point, but it's what I had. The mooney badge doesn't photo well because it's dark against a dark background.

I must say I'm very dissappointed whenever I see a sticker or decal used in place of an actual badge, especially on a high-end bike.

Here's an oddball head badge:


It's the one on my 1972 Line Seeker.
I guess they were proud of the then, very weenie, 1.9kg frame weight....
Enough so that they did not even bother to include the name of the bike on the head badge.......
