Subject: [CR] Raleigh Coronation/Anniversary Headbadge


Perhaps due to senility, I get confused as to what year to attribute the Raleigh Anniversary or Coronation (which one correct?) headbadge. This is the oval-shaped stamped badged as opposed to Heron badge.

Looking at RetroRaleigh 1969 catalog pic, the 1969 (date code Dxxxx) had oval badge. My 1970 (date code Exxxx) Competition has oval badge as does my 1971 (date code Fxxxx) International. I don't have a 1968 (date code Cxxxx) or 1972 (date code Gxxxx) to confirm...but oval badge was used for at least 1969 thru 1971. Can anyone chime-in for 1968 and/or 1972?
