Morning team!

The field that keeps on giving! Need your help in identifying this lovely gold and blue medallion with the word Primo on the front and ‘order before regalia or jewels’ (as far as I can make out????) on the reverse. Only stuff I can find online links it to the Masons or RAOB ? Goodness knows what this is doing on a Welsh hillside lol.

Many thanks

Doug

Masons + welsh hill side = sheep - - Masonic initiation ritual I’d guess…. If you find a pair of over sized wellies and some Velcro gloves…. It’s a positive ID :lol: :lol:
Always carefully proof-read what you've typed to see if you've any words out.

Good logic. :rollinglaughing:
I would guess it dates 1940's onwards.
