SA STAFF level trumpet banner find!

Postby EwanS » Tue May 29, 2018 10:20 am

hi, troops,

would like to show an SA Staff level trumpet banner in outstanding condition!

it was consigned to a very small auction house locally fairly recently, by the Son of the Scottish Veteran who brought it back along with 50+ postcards!

it's of outstanding quality and very heavy piece, I have only seen one other piece the same shown online!

some light patina to the metal work on the bird and shows the fold line down its chest, but its great to find bring backs kept in this condition.

its amazing what is still out there, amazing to find such an item 20 miles away from me in Scotland and the thought of items yet to come out of the woodwork!

never stop digging folks!!!

:-o :x :x :x

Ewan my friend,

There is simply no where else to go with this one, it is just so very top shelf, so scarce and mint but also textbook construction,

Well done mate, I am so pleased you got this one!!!

Cheers,
Michael
