Chieftain - unidentified diecast badge (1950’s / 1960’s)

Anyone recognise this badge?


My first thoughts were it is a promotional badge that came with a diecast toy and was wondering if it had any connection with Lone Star toy products? Lone Star was a British toy manufacturer best known for their range of diecast cap-firing guns and sets of painted toy figures. I trawled the internet but found nothing to substantiate my hunch. (All about the Lone Star toy company).



Enamels: n/a.

Finish: Painted gilt.

Material: Diecast alloy.

Fixer: Pin.

Size: 1 5/8” x 1 3/8” (about 40mm x 35mm).

Thank you for reading.
