Mega Rare - News of World find.
Well, as promised, here is my find from the other week.
I got the feeling it was going for scrap!

As you can see from the pics, it was badly in need of a clean and a polish!

It took me over 3 hours to get it sparkling again!
It's solid silver (around 400g)

Absolutely over the moon to have got it. I know there are hardly any left of these as they were scrapped for cash.

Takes pride of place in my collection.

That is a Bonafide treasure... Mega, that is mate. This is what you call a Trophy...

Where'd you pick it up from...? Any idea what year this trophy was awarded.

It's got G. A. Kidd on it. I think he was an area winner in 1937

1937...Excellent, utterly perfect. A trophy from the First Decade of the competition when it was a Regional Championships.

I've had a quick look with a few internet searches, for any Regional winning lists, no joy yet...

That's amazing, Stuart. It polished up so well. Looks like there's hardly a dent or scratch on it.
